Abductors free Oyo hotelier, wife, others after ransom

An Ibadan-based hotelier, Mr. Oyedokun Oyeniyi, his wife, Busayo; and seven other members of their family who were recently abducted have been released.

It was gathered that the nine captives were released on Tuesday.

The victims were reportedly kidnapped at a hotel in Ajaawa, near Ogbomoso town in Oyo State as the family prepared for a burial ceremony last Saturday.


Their abductors had demanded the sum of N32 million as ransom.

The victims were said to have been released shortly after an undisclosed amount of money was paid to the kidnappers.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Oyo State Command, Mr Adewale Osifeso, said, “Yes, they have been released, please.”
