Anthony Akatakpo, the on-air personality with Wazobia FM who was kidnapped in Port Harcourt last week, has been released.
A source at the radio station said that although the circumstances of his release were unclear as at press time, he was released on Thursday morning, and is currently receiving treatment at a private hospital.
Akas Baba, as he is fondly known, was kidnapped last Thursday by gunmen, who broke into the house very early in the morning, beating him and shooting him in the leg in the presence of his wife and children.
The assailants demanded a ransom of N10 million before taking him away in his Mitsubishi Endeavor SUV with Registration Number LSD 871 CM.
Akas Baba is the host of Make Una Wake Up, the breakfast show on Wazobia FM Port Harcourt, which airs on weekdays from 5am to 10am and is one of the most popular radio shows in the South-South.[Sahara Reporters ] tweet
