By Grace Isaac, Osogbo

Two Osun Farmers identified as Samuel Oladotun and Fashola Tobiloba who were kidnapped in Ileogbo, headquarters of Ayedire Local Government Area of Osun, have regained their freedom.

The victims were released on Wednesday after a ransom of 6million was paid.

The Osun State Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Yemisi Opalola confirmed the development to CityMirrorNews Online.

CityMirror News Online gathered that the victims along with seven others were returning from farm on Wednesday evening (January 11, 2023) when their vehicle, a bus, was attacked by the gunmen around Oke-Osun area of the town at about 5:30pm

The kidnappers demanded for N25million ransom but the family was able to raise a sum of N6million.

However, on Monday when three people took six million to them in Kogi state where they were asked to drop the ransom, they were also held and renegotiated with the family to pay a sum of N24million before they would be released.

The kidnappers released the first two abducted victims while one of the ransom-bearers who went to Kogi for the payment later freed late Tuesday night.

Following the release of the three abductees, only two persons still remained in the kidnappers’ den

Speaking on the development on Wednesday in Osogbo, one of the relatives of the kidnapped victims who spoke under the condition of anonymity told our Correspondent that two of the abductees have regained their freedom.

He said: I am glad to inform us that the first two kidnapped Amb. Samuel Oladotun and Fashola Tobiloba have been released.
