ONITSHA - Two policemen have been arrested in connection with the kidnapping of the Nigerian finance minister's 82-year-old mother, the police said on Wednesday.

Kamene Okonjo, mother of Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, who is also coordinator of the economy, was abducted on Sunday from her home in Nigeria's oil-producing Delta state where kidnapping for ransom is rife.

Delta State Police Commissioner Ikechukwu Aduba said the policemen had been arrested on suspicion of having aided the kidnappers.

"It is a very sad development and our major concern now is to rescue Mama unhurt," Aduba told Reuters by phone.
