Footballer Christian Obodo set to flee Nigeria after being kidnapped for the second time

Former Super Eagles midfielder, Christian Obodo, has regained freedom after he was abducted by unknown gunmen along Refinery Road, Warri in Delta State on Sunday, November 15, 2020.

This comes 6yrs after the 36-year-old was first abducted on June 9, 2012, on his way to church.

Speaking with Brila FM, shortly after regaining his freedom, he said: “It was really discomforting; being locked up four hours in the car boot and in the heat.

The kidnappers were even telling me about how they lost money for placing bets on Nigeria to score in the second half.

They didn’t hurt me or intimidate me because honestly, I can’t understand the reason for anyone to want to put me through this sort of thing over again.”

He added that he could move out of Nigeria because of the trauma he has had to pass through during the two kidnapping ordeals.
