“The victims were rescued unhurt, while security operatives continued combing the bush which led to the discovery of three amongst the suspects where they were hiding in the forest.
“When they were searched, the key to the abandoned motorcycle at the scene of the kidnap was recovered in the pocket of one of them along with three cutlasses.
“Meanwhile, Commissioner of Police, Mr. Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to anti kidnapping section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department Departments for discreet investigation”.
