The Baale of Araromi Community in Ido local government area, Baale Tafa Apapan, and his wife have been released.
The duo were abducted by unknown gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen in the early hours of Tuesday from his home.
The release was confirmed by the Chairman, Ido local government, Mr Sheriff Adeojo.
Adeojo had earlier assured the people of the community that the government will do everything possible to secure the release of their leader unhurt.
While addressing youths who staged a protest to express their displeasure on the kidnap of the Baale and his wife, the council boss had assured that the government had opened discussions with all relevant security agencies in the state.
Meanwhile, effort to confirm the release from the Police proved abortive as calls made to his phone were not answered and yet to be returned as at the time of this report.
