Four female students of Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, and their driver, who were abducted, while returning home for the holidays in Ondo state, have regained their freedom.

Fidel Info reports that Hon Soji Ogedengbe, a former Majority Leader in Akoko North West Council area of the state, confirmed this while speaking to newsmen in Akure.

Hon Soji, also confirmed that ransom was paid before the students of Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, were freed by their captors.

He did not specify the amount paid as ransom to the kidnappers by the parents of the victims.

Recall that the students and the driver of the commercial vehicle conveying them were ambushed and kidnapped along the Akunnu-Ajowa road, in Akoko area of the state, last week Friday.

Their abductors had demanded for N16m ransom from the parents of the victims before their release.

No security agency has, however, confirmed their release.
