CBN Governor, Emefiele Speaks On His Wife’s Kidnapping

The governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, has confirmed the release of his wife, who was kidnapped along Benin-Agbor road on Thursday.

Expressing gratitude to God and President Muhammadu Buhari for her release, Emefiele vowed to continue serving the country “without any fear of intimidation”.

In a statement released in Abuja on Saturday, Emefiele said his wife was rescued on Friday night.

He also expressed his gratitude to the Delta and Edo state governments, friends and well wishers who, through their actions, prayers and goodwill, helped to bring this harrowing experience to a joyful end.
