A statement from the Elumelu family:
We are most grateful to the Federal Government, the Delta State Government and the respective law enforcement agencies for their professionalism, diligence and bravery which led to her rescue. The family wishes to thank Nigerians and friends from around the world for the unprecedented outpouring of concern, solidarity, love and prayers during the harrowing ordeal.

A lot of these old people do not like to leave the 'comfort' they've known all their lives. Bring them to civilisation as we know it and 3days later they're crying to go back to the village and firewood. Obafemi Martins mom died at her house in Orile. As rich as her son is, she refused to leave that house. So do not blame her kids. Its the life she knows. And I bet despite the kidnap, she'll be back at that farm in a week's time.

Some people are so daft! Their idea of enjoyment is to sleep and eat all day, try it at that age or even at your young age if you have money and see how fast you waste.

Farming is a respectable job. It depends on the scale it's being done.

Mama aaabeg follow our children back to lagos oooh.

Lagos will deport her, what's their contribution to lagos, who asked them nt to develop their region while in office sitting on billions of dollars investment. How many graduate did he employ frm delta and how many youth enjoy scholarship frm him and what did he return to d society where he comes frm.how many hut did he tranform to mordern houses under mortgage planning, they are only interested in lekki ikoyi. Whatever u sow u shall reap. A society dat can provide for d poor definitely cannot secure d few rich.

D truth is bitter, whatever u sow shall u reap. Omo to Ni Iya oni su won't sleep as well. Create a factory and kp dis kids off d street. An idle hand is d devils workshop, wen u help Nigeria u ar helping urself.

Why should mama run away from her home in the village? Thank God she is safe. Why kidnap an 80 yr old woman, regardless of who her son is? That money that you will chop on her head, will it save your life, when you appear on the day of judgement!

Some people think farming signifies carrying hoe, cuttlass, basin and trekking 10 miles to the farm. A farm could be in your house. It could be a fish farm, turkey farm, ostrich farm, poultry farm. It can be a mechanised farm. So dumb ass coconut headed piglets thinks the worst when they heard she was kidnapped in her farm. Mtcheeeeew narrow minded blind bats. kk

What a big relief to know the Matriarch of the Elumelu's is now safe and back with her family. I met this woman exactly a decade ago, she was so humble, down to earth and God blessed her with a beautiful unblemished radiant skin - even at her age at the time. She'd been shopping in Balogun/Idumota and needed to come into the bank Branch, but got bounced by the security as it was past 4pm. She took it calmly, and stood by the gate perspiring heavily in the hot sun. I was just heading back into the branch when i saw her, and approached her to ask if i could be of any assistance - i instantly recognised her as TOE's mother as i'd seen a family pix of the Elumelu's as a patient of TOE's wife at a clinic, and arranged for her to be allowed in to the branch. This woman resisted all my entreaties to have her sit in the Business manager's office or one of the airconditioned rooms but rather preferred to wait quietly in one corner of a corridor. I followed up on her little transaction, walked her to her car and advised her driver to make more of an effort to assist her next time. No one else knew who she was apart from the BM.
