    let go of - to stop holding (e.g. let go of my hand)
    let smb go - to allow smb to go (e.g. 'Let my people go')

    I think they are hardly interchangeable in the last example.

    They are. Let go means to release.

    Let go of me= Let me go?
    Yes, they have the same meaning. But it is precise and concise to use the latter "Let me go".

    I'd say it's efficient and economical.
