The kidnapped Imo monarch Eze Charles Iroegbu of Umueze Nguru autonomous community in Aboh Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State has been released. He was released on Saturday morning alongside others. 

The kidnapped Imo Monarch was kidnapped last Wednesday.

The popular monarch, who is the owner and Chief Executive Officer of All States Mass Transit, was kidnapped alongside five cabinet chiefs and two palace guards.

They were kidnapped at Seven and Half Junction along Umuahia-Anara-Orlu Road, after attending a traditional wedding ceremony in Ehime Mbano LGA.

They were in three vehicles heading back to the kingdom when the gun-wielding men waylaid them and diverted their movement.

The kidnap of the monarch heightened tension in the state following a spate of insecurity.

The community lived in fear and apprehension as their abductors refused to establish communication with the royal family or anybody in the kingdom.

But reprieve came on Saturday morning as the monarch, his five cabinet chiefs and two palace guards were freed.

The entire community was “jubilating over the safe return of his Royal Majesty, the cabinet chiefs and the two palace guards.
