ABUJA  - The elderly mother of Nigeria’s finance minister was on Friday freed from kidnappers after being abducted from her home in the country’s south last weekend in a crime that shocked the country, police said. Details of the release were unclear and there was no indication of whether a ransom was paid to free the 82-year-old Kamene Okonjo, whose daughter Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is a high-profile minister and ex-World Bank managing director. “She has been freed,” police spokesman Frank Mba told AFP. “She is in good health.” He declined to provide further details other than to say that she was freed earlier Friday. The minister’s spokesman issued a statement confirming the release, but also without providing further details.
