It was cheering news that the two female students of the Olabisi Onabanjo University, OOU, Ogun State, abducted on Sunday have been rescued by the operatives of the Ogun State Police Command.
The two students identified as Adeyemo Precious and Oyefule Abiola studying Forestry and Wildlife Management and Agricultural Economics respectively were abducted at about 9pm on Sunday when the attackers stormed Igbole Aibo Quarters area of Ayetoro, in Yewa North Local Government Area of State.
The news of their release was broken to the public by Governor Dapo Abiodun late Tuesday night on his twitter handle.
Their release came almost 72 hours after they were kidnapped and less than 24 hours when the governor gave marching orders to the security agencies in the state to rescue the students unhurt and arrest the perpetrators of the kidnap.
However, the Governor commended the Ogun State Command of the Nigeria Police and other security agencies involved in the exercise.
The governor had tweeted:
“This is to announce that we have secured the release of Precious Adeyemo and Abiola Oyefule – both OOU students recently kidnapped in Ayetoro.
“I appreciate the efforts of the Ogun State Command of the Nigeria Police and other security agencies involved in the exercise that will now see the ladies reunited with their respective families .”
It was, however, not clear yet whether any suspect was arrested or any ransom was paid.
