The Kwara State police command, on Thursday, confirmed the release of four tipper drivers who were reportedly kidnapped on Wednesday in the outskirts of Ilorin, the State capital.
Spokesman of the police command, Mr Okasanmi Ajayi confirmed their release to newsmen, saying that the four kidnap victims have regained their freedom from the kidnappers’ den and are now with their families.
The police spokesman disclosed that efforts were ongoing to arrest masterminds of the kidnap incident.
Although a family source of one of the released drivers reportedly revealed that ransom was paid for their freedom, the police command remained silent on the issue because of its zero tolerance for ransom payment by families of abducted victims.
Okasanmi, appealed to members of the public to continue to give the police information which will make them succeed in their assignment.
