It was gathered that the victims were released by the gunmen along the Ilawe-Erinjiyan Ekiti road where they were abducted.
One of the sources said, “You know the three of them were Kidnapped on Thursday night and we thank God they were released on Sunday night after payment of N6 million as ransom. They have released almost the same area they were Kidnapped.”
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer ( PPRO) ASP Sunday Abutu who confirmed the release, said he was not aware of the ransom paid by the family.
He said, “I can confirm to you that the three victims have been released and reunited with their families. I am not aware of any ransom.”
