Four tipper lorry drivers abducted on the outskirts of Ilorin, Kwara State last Saturday, have been set free.
The spokesman of state police command, Okasanmi Ajayi, confirmed the release of the drivers last night.
He said, “Yes, they have been released by their abductors, but I cannot give you further details now except when I get to the office because I am on transit from Patigi local government area and the network is poor.
“But we are yet to make additional arrests from the two we already made and they are still under investigation,” Ajayi said.
A family member of one of the victims, who pleaded anonymity, confirmed their release and the payment of an undisclosed sum of ransom.
The kidnappers had demanded a ransom of N5 million on each of the four drivers.
