Father of Chelsea player Mikel found in Nigeria

The kidnapped father of Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel was freed Monday after detectives traced him to a sprawling city in northern Nigeria and arrested his abductors.

Olusola Amore, a spokesman for the country's federal police, told The Associated Press that investigators followed Michael Obi's trail from central Nigeria's Plateau state to Kano, one of the nation's largest cities.

There, officers raided the area where Obi was held, freeing him and arresting his kidnappers, Amore said.
