Abducted former Super Eagles midfielder, Christian Obodo Regains Freedom



Abducted former Super Eagles midfielder, Christian Obodo, has been freed by his abductors.

Obodo was kidnapped on Sunday evening with a female friend along Refinery Road, Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State.

The duo was reportedly left off the hook at about 10:30 p.m the same Sunday after allegedly paying an undisclosed amount of ransom to his abductors.


A friend of the former footballer who recently retired from his Greece Football Club, Appollon Smyrnis, Engr. Big Sam, confirmed the release of Obodo on Monday.

Sunday’s abduction of Christian Obodo makes it the second time he has been kidnapped by gunmen in the state.

Recall that he was abducted on June 9, 2012, on his way to church in Warri but was later freed.

Ironically, Christian Obodo’s Sunday abduction came a few weeks after paying an appreciation call to the former governor of Delta State, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan for securing his release the first time he was abducted in 2012.
