Human rights Lawyer, Mike Ozekhome wept when he arrived his Lagos home Thursday afternoon after his release from the kidnappers den.

Ozekhome who alighted from a black Ford Escalade SUV, ran into the arms of his wife, kissed her an repeatedly said 'thank you Jesus'.

The legal luminary who had grown a beard, wept on sighting his children  and relatives.

The lawyer said  his experience in the hands of his  abductors is something he will not forget.

An elder brother to the human rights lawyer, Dr. Francis Ozekhome, said 'I have not been myself since his kidnap as I went through hell during that time. I had to leave my house in Ijeshatedo to stay with the wife and children. We received no communication from the kidnappers and I do not know if money was paid for his release because no money passed through me.

'Mike is a man of the people. We can see that there is no security in the country so  I am appealing to the Federal Government that this is the time for them to do something about the nation's security.'
