Veteran musician, Ambassador Osayomore Joseph, who was kidnapped by unknown gunmen in October 3, in his village at Orovie, near Benin City shortly after performing at the one year corination anniversary of the Oba of Benin has been released.
The musician was reported to have regained his freedom in the early hours of Thursday.
His first son, Osayomore Joseph Jr, who joyfully confirmed his release to journalists, said that the family is making arrangement for a medical check up.
“My father has been released but he is not too healthy so he is currently in the hospital taking treatment. It has not been easy for us as a family but we thank God he is back home. We are trying to give him the best medical care he deserves.”
¨So he is in the hospital now and it is our prayers that everything goes well so he can rejoin his family in good health because we have really suffered all these while, it has been very traumatic for us and not a good situation that you can even pray for your enemy. We thank God he is home alive.¨
