He said he heard their voices and was happy that they were released unhurt.
High Chief Balogun, who represented Oyo Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly between 1999 and 2003, also disclosed that his wife and the mother of the twins, Mrs. Funmilayo Balogun had gone to Lagos to monitor the medical check-up of the twins and bring them back to Ibadan.

Mrs Balogun said: “To say that I was happy and I’m still happy now is an understatement and I can’t be thankful enough to God Almighty for protecting my children during the period, just as I thank everybody involved in the release”.
She expressed optimism that the medical report being awaited would be favourable and promised that they would come back to Ibadan as soon as possible.
