In a dramatic turn of events, Seliat Raji, the sister of prominent Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Ahmed Raji, has been released by her captors after a harrowing six-day ordeal. The masked gunmen, who abducted her from her residence in Iseyin, Oyo State, on Thursday night, finally set her free in the early hours of today.

According to sources close to the family, the kidnappers demanded a substantial ransom, which was reportedly paid before her release. The exact amount paid is yet to be confirmed.

Seliat’s husband, who wished to remain anonymous, expressed his gratitude to the security agencies and individuals who worked tirelessly to secure her release. “We are overjoyed to have her back home safely. We thank God and all those who supported us during this difficult time,” he said.

The Oyo State Police Command has confirmed the release, stating that investigations are ongoing to apprehend the culprits and bring them to justice.

The kidnapping incident had sparked widespread concern and outrage, with many calling for increased security measures to protect citizens from such heinous crimes.

With Seliat’s safe return, the family and community can now breathe a sigh of relief, even as the search for the masked gunmen continues.
