He was reluctant to give details of his ordeal, but was grateful to members of the press,his constituency for the pressure piled on the kidnappers to set him free.
Asked if he was tortured he said:”That was normal…because of the pressure piled up for my release in the media they wondered why I should be telling them that I am just a civil servant attached to Government House”.
