ABDUCTORS have freed four students of the Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, after being  held in captivity for few days in Ondo state.

The students namely; Florence Obadero, Oreoluwa Aregbesola, Ifeoluwa Ahmed, and Omotoyosi Olarotimi, were released on Wednesday evening after spending five days in the abductor’s den.

News Point Nigeria gathered that the four of them were released after their families paid ransom to the abductors.

Meanwhile, the exact figure paid cannot be ascertained as of the time filing this report.

Findings show that the victims were abducted last week Friday while returning to their hometown of Ajowa-Akoko in Akoko North West Local Government for Christmas.

When the car they were riding in became stuck at the Ago Jinadu axis of the road, the gunmen kidnapped the students, all female, along the Akunnu-Ajowa highway in Akoko.

An undisclosed sum was said to have been paid to ensure the students’ release, according to Soji Ogedengbe, a former majority leader in the Akoko North West Local Council.

The entire Ajowa community, according to Ogedengbe, erupted in celebration when word of the victims’ release spread in the town.

The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, SP Funmilayo Odunlami, confirmed the incident but didn’t say if ransom was paid or not.
