Seven days after being abducted at gunpoint at Kajola village on Benin-Ijebu Ode Expressway, in Odigbo Local Council of Ondo State, two Reverend Sisters, Apo Perpetual and Roseline Familade, and their driver, Zwugwa Zibai, yesterday regained freedom.
The three victims were abducted last Sunday when travelling to Ogun State for a programme. They were, however, rescued by a team of security operatives from the state and men of the Intelligence Squad drafted from Abuja by the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Solomon Arase.
Confirming the development, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Femi Joseph, said the victims regained their freedom on Sunday morning.
