Olu Falae Abduction Saga: Family Member Alleges Ransom was Paid for Release

There are conflicting accounts about how exactly former Secretary of the Government of the Federation, Olu Falae, was released from his captors.
You will recall that Inspector General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, on Thursday said that no ransom was paid for Falae’s release.
And now, one of Falae’s family members has reportedly told Sun that con­trary to police authorities’ claims, a ransom was indeed paid before Fa­lae was released.
“Police did not have any input in Baba’s release,” the source reportedly said.
I wonder why people don’t investigate well be­fore talking. It will be very unfair to give any kudos to the police over Chief Fa­lae’s release having being held hostage for four days.
If we relied on Police to rescue Baba and ignored his abductors on the ran­som they demanded by now we would have been telling another story. But we thank God our Baba came back alive.
So, in this kind of de­velopment, we should wait and be listening to the po­lice? My brother, forget. As far as I know, the police didn’t play any role in his release. The family played ball with the abductors, and they took him back to his farm where he was kid­napped and dropped him there. “Baba even said it when he got home that af­ter the abductors had con­cluded their arrangements with his family, they took him back to his farm at Ila­do and dropped him there.
Baba said when his abductors dropped him, he trekked several kilo­meters from his farm to a hotel in owo where he met some policemen and in­troduced himself as Chief Olu Falae. That was how the Police got to know of his release and hijacked the whole process as if they are the one who rescued him. Only an unreasonable person will still give kudos to the police for the Chief’s release. We know who and who we should thank, not the police.
