Two kidnaped pupils regain freedom in Ondo

Two little girls who were abducted  from their mother at gunpoint by kidnappers in Ondo State have been freed

The two pupils whose names were given as Fikayo and Bolu were said to have been released after  ransom was paid to their captors.

The girls were abducted last Friday at Leo area of Akure metropolis around 8pm while their mother was trying to open the gate to their compound after returning from her shop.

The victims, age four and two were dropped at the roadside within Okuta Elerinla axis in Akure, the state capital around 10pm on Tuesday.

 A good samaritan saw them and took them to a police station before they were handed over to their parents.

It was gathered through a family source that a sum of N5 million paid as ransom to the abductors before they were released.

The source which craved anonymity added that the kidnappers had initially demanded N40m ransom before it was reduced to N5m following a series of negotiations.

He added that the joy of the mother knew no bounds as she was reunited with her daughter and her sister’s daughter living with her.

Spokesperson of the state Police Command, DSP Funmi Odunlami confined the release of the two pupils.

 She  said a good samaritan saw them in the night and took them to a police station, denied that ransom was paid for their release.

The car of their mother had earlier been recovered on Akure-Ikere Ekiti road few days ago.
