Three female primary school teachers abducted by kidnappers at Orhogbua Primary School, Ekehuan, village, Edo state, finally regained their freedom Tuesday morning after two weeks in captivity.
The teachers, Patience Osadoplor, Momodu Aisha and Patience Oroghene were seized at gunpoint from the school on 30 July.
It was reliably gathered that they were released at about 3.am on Tuesday at the Ekhehuan axis of the state.
They were said to have called members of their family who went to pick them up.
Their abductors had initially demanded for N60 million ransom for their release, but later slashed the amount to N7.5 million.
A very dependable source close to the teachers’ Union who craves anonymity, exclusively disclosed to P.M. NEWS that the sum of N5 million ransom was paid to the kidnappers before they released the teachers.
