Just IN: Abducted Ekiti Schoolchildren, Teachers Finally Regain Freedom
Schoolchildren of Apostolic Faith Group of Schools, Emure-Ekiti, Ekiti State and their teachers, who were recently kidnapped by armed men have been released.
Trojan cannot ascertain at the moment if the victims who regained freedom at about 2.00 am on Sunday were rescued by security operatives or released after payment of ransom.
But the abductors had demanded N100 million for the release of the victims, which was not paid earlier prompting rumours that the kidnappers had threatened to kill the pupils.
The children and their teachers were abducted by the assailants on Monday evening.
Unconfirmed reports emerged on Saturday stating that the victims had been released but the police swiftly debunked the report.
However, in a short video clip being circulated on Sunday morning, the freed pupils and their teachers were sighted sitting on the floor, looking tired.
