Patience Tam-George, the 85-year-old mother of Rivers State commissioner for Information, Austin Tam-George, has been freed after six days in captivity.

The commissioner, Mr. Tam-George, in a text message to PREMIUM TIMES, said his mother was released late Thursday night.

Tam-George did not give details about her release.

He said Mrs. Tam-George had been taken to a private hospital in Rivers State “for evaluation and care”.

Mrs. Tam-George, 85, was said to be returning home from church in the evening when she was abducted on February 13 at George Ama area, Okrika town, Rivers state.
