Henry Madumere, the father of Eze Madumere, the former deputy governor of Imo state, has regained his freedom, five days after he was kidnapped.

Madumere, who is the traditional ruler of Ezi-Mbieri autonomous community, was kidnapped on November 19 at Iho community in Ikeduru LGA of Imo state.

He was said to be on his way to an event when he was abducted.

He was, however, released by his abductors in the early hours of Wednesday.


After he was freed, the octogenarian was said to have been taken to a hospital for medical checkup, after which he arrived his home town, Achi, Ezi Mbieri autonomous community in Mbaitoli LGA of Imo State.

The former deputy governor confirmed the development in a statement issued by Uche Onwuchekwa, his media aide.

“The father of the former Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere, HRH Eze Henry Anoruo Madumere, has regained freedom from his abductors,” the statement reads.


“The traditional ruler was received with shouts of joy by family members and subjects who thanked God for bringing their king home safely.”

However, it is unclear if the family paid ransom for the release of the traditional ruler.
