Edo Musician, Osayomore Joseph Regains Freedom



Benin-City based musician, Osayomore Joseph, who was kidnapped on October 3 has regained his freedom. He was released at the early hours of Thursday in Benin City. His first son, Osayomore Joseph Jr, confirmed his release to journalists.

He said: ¨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, he stated.

Osayomore was abducted shortly after he performed at the one year coronation anniversary of the Oba of Benin, at the palace.
