The Spokesman for the state police command, DSP William Aya, who confirmed this on Sunday in Lokoja, said the traditional ruler was released on the evening of July 17.
Aya said the state police command had already sent a delegation to Eganyi to sympathise with the ruler.
According to him, Adembe spent five days with his captors before regaining freedom.
