Workers From Olusegun Obasanjo’s Farm Regain Freedom After 3 Days In Kidnappers’ Den
The Nigerian Police, Ogun Command, reports that it has rescued three workers from former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s farm from their kidnappers’ den three days after they were abducted.
On Friday evening, the Police Spokesperson, DSP. Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abeokuta.
According to NAN, workers from Obasanjo Farm were kidnapped on their way home from work on Wednesday evening in Seseri Village.
The farm is located in the Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state, in the Kobape area.
On Friday, Oyeyemi told NAN that the release was the result of “serious pressure mounted on the kidnappers.”
He claimed that anti-kidnapping agents had been trailing the abductors.
Since the incident, the squad has been combing the bushes around the area, he claims.
“Yes, we mounted a lot of pressures on the kidnappers.
“Since yesterday (Thursday) our anti-kidnapping operatives have been in the bush searching for them.
“They were able to trace them to the bush behind the Day Waterman College, along the Kobape Road.
“This evening, they released them (victims) unhurt without any ransom,” he said.
When asked if any arrests had been made, Oyeyemi responded, “not yet, but we are very confident that we will make arrests soon.”
