Kidnappers have released Chief Agbabou Week, father of the Bayelsa State Commissioner for Agriculture, Doodei Week.

Naijaparry understands that the monarch was dropped at the riverside town of Amassoma in Southern Ijaw council area and disappeared into the maze of creeks.

Recall that unidentified gunmen on October 3 abducted the traditional ruler and whisked him away from his country home at Ayama-Ijaw to an unknown destination.

It was learned that the Ebenanaowei of Tarakiri Clan was kidnapped about 11:20 pm by seven masked men, who carried weapons including AK47 rifles.

The assailants ransacked the palace of the king carting away television sets, jewellery, and other valuables.

They reportedly mishandled the victim as they dragged him on the ground to the waterside, where they fled with him on speedboats.

But the commissioner on his Facebook page on Sunday said that his father was freed by the kidnappers on Sunday.

Week said: “Finally, my role model, man who thought me things, including courage, fear of God, love, perseverance, respect, humility, how to say no or yes, where it is the right time to say, and above all, prays for me, is back home after 25days of incarceration by adversarial elements,” he said.
