According to police, the release came after “severe pressure was applied to the kidnappers.”
Three laborers from former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s farm were freed from their kidnappers’ cave by the Nigerian Police, Ogun Command, three days after they were abducted.
DSP. Abimbola Oyeyemi, the Police Spokesperson, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abeokuta on Friday evening.
According to NAN, workers from the Obasanjo Farm were kidnapped on their way home from work on Wednesday evening in Seseri Village.
The farm lies in the Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state, in the Kobape area.
On Friday, Oyeyemi told NAN that the release came after “a lot of pressure was put on him.”
He claimed that anti-kidnapping agents were on the lookout for the kidnappers.
Since the event, he claims, the squad has kept combing the bushes in the region.
“Yes, we applied significant pressure on the kidnappers.
“Our anti-kidnapping operatives have been searching for them since yesterday (Thursday).”
“They were able to track them down to the jungle behind Day Waterman College, which is located on Kobape Road.
“They released them (victims) unharmed without any ransom this evening,” he claimed.
“We are extremely certain that we will make arrests soon,” Oyeyemi stated when asked if any arrests had been made.
