A National Diploma student of the Nasarawa State-owned Isa Mustapha Agwai Polytechnic, Lafia, Taye Ajoke, who was kidnapped on Monday, has regained her freedom.
According to PUNCH, Ajoke was released by her abductors after a ransom of N300,000 was paid.
She was abducted after heavily armed men while shooting sporadically attacked her residence, Ombi 1, which is two kilometres away from the Polytechnic, and took her to an unknown destination.
The incident left two other students and an admission seeker with bullet wounds.
The President of the Students Union Government of the polytechnic, Ekom Ayaka, who confirmed the development said Ajoke’s kidnappers had earlier called to demand for N50 Million but later reduced the ransom to N500,000 when they noticed that her family and well-wishers could not meet up with their earlier request.
He added that after several appeals to the kidnappers for a further reduction of the ransom, they agreed to release her in exchange for N300,000.
He said, “We are grateful to God that Ajoke has been released by the bandits. She was released around 7pm on Wednesday after a ransom of N300,000 was paid.
“The kidnappers first wanted N50million but they later reduced the money to N500,000 when they understood that her family and friends will not be able to get such an amount.
“But after much appeal to them (kidnappers), they told her family to pay the sum of N300,000 that was in their possession. That was how she was released from captivity.”Follow us on social media:
