A  combined team of soldiers and policemen on Saturday, rescued 10 victims from a kidnappers’ den in Efon-Alaaye, Ekiti State.

No fewer than three persons had died in the area since the kidnappers invaded the town about 10 days ago.

The rescued victims included, the manager of a petrol station in the state and his wife.

The soldiers and men of the Operation Flush from the Ekiti State Command on Saturday invaded the forest where the kidnappers were hiding after carrying out two attacks and abducting some persons last weekend.

A source said there was a fierce duel between the security agencies and the kidnappers before the criminals were arrested.

“They requested N20m ransom from the petrol station manager but later reduced it to N15m. They were constantly making contact with the family.

“As of this morning (Saturday), the family could only raise N1.2m and that was the situation before the soldiers and police stormed the forest and secured their freedom,” the source said.

The Police Public Relations Officer in Ekiti, Caleb Ikechukwu, confirmed the development.

A statement from the Assistant Director of Army Public Relations, Major Ojo Adenegan, said the victims were kidnapped on their way to Ado Ekiti from Efon-Alaaye in two commercial buses at different points.

Adenegan appealed to the public to supply useful information to security agencies.
