A banker with Polaris Bank and two others who were kidnapped in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, have been released.

Recall that some gunmen who stormed Ijebu-Ode- Ibadan Road in Ibadan, few days ago, kidnapped four people.

Public Relations Officer of the State Police command, Mr. Olugbenga Fadeyi confirmed the abduction to newsmen

It was gathered that one of the kidnapped victims was lucky to escape last week.

Saga Gist recalls that the abductors had earlier demanded the sum of fifteen million naira (N15M) from the families of the victims.

The abductors have now released their victims.

It was gathered that the release of the victims is coming after the families paid the sum of Five Million Naira (N5m) ransom to the kidnappers.

A close source to one of the family members of the victims said on Monday that the victims were released during the weekend.

He said, “They have been released after payment of ransom of N5m.”
