Information available to Wawa News Global says  the traditional ruler of Obum Agbogugu, Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State,  HRH Igwe Sunday Orji, and his wife   abducted Sunday evening by gun men suspected to be Fulani herdsmen, have regained their freedom.
The monarch and his wife according to a source close to the palace were released Wednesday evening, three days after they were taken hostage.

As at the time of filing this report, details of their release were still sketchy.
Recall that their abductors had Tuesday demanded N50 million ransom for their release and later reduced it to N20 according to reports.
The monarch and his wife were  kidnapped Sunday  evening between Ogbaku – Umuogbe Ihe axis of the Enugu – PH Expressway.
They were  on their  way back to Obom Agbogwugwu after attending a Thanksgiving ceremony organized by the immediate -past member representing  Awgu South state constituency at the Enugu House of Assembly, Hon Nelson Uduji.
An eye witness who escaped by the whiskers said the gun men had also opened fire on his own vehicle but he managed to escape them as he dangerously sped past the spot.
The monarch and other vehicles following him were however not as lucky as the gunmen succeeded in forcing their vehicles to a halt.
As soon as his car stopped the traditional  ruler and his wife were hurriedly dragged out of their vehicle and marched  into the bush by the herdsmen.
Former Commissioner for Information Abia State, Mr. Eze Chikamnayo has also escaped the same gunmen by the whiskers although his car was riddled by bullet.
