Seven travellers kidnapped last Tuesday along Ibokun/Osogbo road in Osun State have regained freedom from their abductors.
A release made available to newsmen by the Osun State Police Command through their spokesperson Mrs Yemisi Opalola on Saturday stated that the victims were released due to pressure mounted on the kidnappers by the police and other security operatives.
Recall that the commuters were kidnapped at about 7:30 pm around Ajebandele/Oja tuntun axis of Osogbo/Ibokun road on Tuesday by gunmen who killed the driver and wounded two others.
