Five weeks after his abduction and release from the hands of kidnappers, former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Chief Olu Falae, has reportedly travelled abroad for medical attention.

Falae had a raw deal allegedly in the hands of some Fulani herdsmen on September 21, 2015 at his farm site in Ilado village, Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State.

He was subsequently released on September 24 after a sum of N5m was allegedly paid as ransom.

Sources said the National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) travelled to the United Kingdom to undergo proper medical check-up following the injuries he reportedly sustained during his captivity.

Contacted on the development, Falae’s Personal Assistant, Captain Moshood Raji (retd), confirmed that the elder statesman travelled out of the country on vacation and for proper medical checkup.

He explained that the septuagenarian had not been able to have enough rest after the abduction saga, saying he would use the opportunity of the vacation to do some other things which include medical treatment.

He said: “Oga (Falae) has travelled to the United Kingdom on vacation and would also have his medical check up there, but he is expected back by the end of this month.”
