The ex-international was abducted by gunmen along the Refinery Road in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State alongside a female friend when he stopped by to buy banana at about 5 pm.

It was learnt that both Obodo and the lady friend were released by their captors on Sunday night.

It was also gathered that the footballer, who retired recently from a Greece Football Club, paid undisclosed ransom before he was freed around 10:30 pm on Sunday.

Confirming the release of Obodo to journalists in Warri on Monday, one of his longtime friends, Big Sam, said, “He has been released. He was released last night. I met him this morning. The town is becoming more unsafe. We are glad that he is back home.”

The unfortunate incident made it the second time the ex-player was kidnapped in the country.
