A family source confirmed the latest development to one of our  correspondents in Yenagoa the state capital  ,but  refused to give details of how she regained her freedom.

Our source who pleaded that his name should not be mentored because he was authorised to do so  , however did not say whether ransom was paid before her release.

Niger Delta Herald reports that a suspect Weniowei of Lobia community  was arrested by the security agencies last week in connection with the abduction,  he may  have spilled  the beans that gave the lead that led to her regaining her freedom.

The Police is also yet to issue a statement in regards to the latest development..
