Kidnapped students of the Lagos State Model College, Igbonla, Epe, have been released by their abductors.
The release was confirmed by Dolapo Badmos, public relations officer of the Nigeria police force, zone 2.
However, a source said the students, who were abducted on May 25, secured their freedom in Ondo state.
Their parents had earlier paid a ransom of N31 million but their captors refused to let them go.
It is not clear if it is all the six students who were released.
Recall that last week Acting President Yemi Osinbajo had given assurances of the safe return of the kidnapped Lagos secondary school students. He urged parents and guardians of the kidnapped Lagos School boys not to lose hope on the return of their wards.
ccording to Osinbajo, ” I don’t know how many times the governor has spoken to me about this and the police the Inspector General, the Commissioner of Police, the DSS and even the Armed Forces.’’
“I am sure these children will return as quickly as possible, so we look forward to their return.’’
