The Police Public Relations Officer, Chukwu Okechukwu, who confirmed the new development in Uyo, said that Udom was released on Wednesday night, May 10.
"He was released on Wednesday night and receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital. The Police command is working tirelessly to ensure that the hoodlums do not go unpunished."
Ndianabasi Udom, the victim’s son, who also confirmed the release, said his father is battling with “severe health condition due to the trauma he experienced during over one month of incarceration”.
According to Ndianabasi, the rest of the victims were killed, some were injected with acid and their bodies thrown into soakaway.
Below is his Facebook post:
"And to the glory of God, my father who was kipnapped exactly one month and 2 days ago has just been released by his abductors. Let me thank everyone who prayed for us, stood by us and understood our privacy during this trying times. Never in our lives have we received the kind of phone calls and messages like we did recently, we are indeed grateful.
Let me thank everyone who has always been envious and used the opportunity to wag their tongues, some said he was kidnapped because of Nana, some said because of Nana's promotion, some said it's because Nana helps everyone he sees so they feel he has too much money(Do u see people's problems?), some said because of the everyday socials that we use this platform to carry out just to get close, interact with people and inspire people which was suppose to be the main reason for this platform before some irresponsible and people with horrible backgrounds turned it to where they play their envy and jealous games just because they have refused to give their lives a meaning and have resolved to gossiping and backbiting.
It might interest you to know that the hoodlums don't even know i exist, they never called my name for one day and just acted on the information of kidnapping a polytechnic proprietor as they did to the owner of Heritage polytechnic, Eket some years ago.
His only problem was that he built a higher institution in his village, employed most of his people in the school, single handedly bought transformers and brought light to the village, build churches in the village, pays labourers to clear roads in the whole village and keeps his compound open for anybody who cares to come in with their problems( can u believe this?)
Dear people, did you people not want us to advertise our polytechnic after all the sweat? Is it your polytechnic? Should we have built the school and open it as people who are all deaf and dumbs and for the fear of people thinking we are proud?
Do u people know the luxury we have deprived ourselves of for the past years just for those structures you people are envying today? Do you people know the things we did not do while growing up? Do u people think the village donated the land for that school? So why the envy? Why not work for your own future and leave people who have worked for theirs alone?
One thing is certain, Even if they took his life which we knew God would not have allowed because they did not create him, he would have made heaven and will be resting because if there is a goal he wanted to achieve in his lifetime, it was that institution he just inaugurated, continue your envy, continue your gossips, continue investing all your energy(ies) in pulling people down, we pray for your safety in all u do.
Once again, we appreciate everyone who SINCERELY reposted on their facebook pages, newspapers and blogs.
My gratitude will be incomplete if i fail to mention and acknowledge the special prayer sessions held in the whole Qua Iboe churches in Nigeria, God bless the ministers and every other church which took this burden upon their shoulders for because of your prayers and that of all the christians out there, he was released, the rest of the victims were killed, some were injected with acid and their bodies thrown into soakaways. Our God remains a big God.
IN SUMMARY, HELPING PEOPLE IS NOW A PROBLEM IN AKWA IBOM STATE, HELPING MEANS SHOW OFF, THIS IS WHY AKWA IBOM PEOPLE DONT HELP THEMSELVES, THEY PREFER TO RELATE WITH OUTSIDERS, THIS IS WHY PEOPLE INVEST OUTSIDE THAN IN AKWA IBOM, THIS IS WHY WE HAVE AKWA IBOMITES WHO ARE BILLIONNIARES BUT LOOK OUT FOR JUST THEIR IMMEDIATE FAMILIES.
God bless you dear friends and enemies.
