A Report voiced, “I can assure you that they’ve gained their freedom back and they’ve go back to their various homes. The only thing i can speak on is that the kidnappers requested for a ransom of 50 million naira initial, but finally deduced it to 3 million naira and people were hustling to get the ransom and pay immediately.”
“But have in mind that one of the kidnapper who was a suspect, who people believed that he must be among the kidnappers was apprehended that same week.
