The kidnapped students and staff of the Nigerian-Turkish school in Ogun State have been rescued, police said Tuesday.

The five students and three staff of the Nigeria-Turkish International School located in Isheri Area of Ogun State were kidnapped on January 13.

The Ogun State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who broke the news on a social media platform known as PenPushing platform said details of the rescue would be made available later.

‘The pupils and staffs of Nigeria Turkish international school kidnapped on Friday 13th January have all been rescued unhurt this evening. Details later,” the police spokesperson wrote.

Mr. Oyeyemi also confirmed the release of the victims to PREMIUM TIMES in a telephone interview promising to provide more details on Wednesday.

There had been reports that their abductors made a ransom demand.

However, the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone 2, Kayode Aderanti, said earlier on Tuesday that no one had been contacted for ransom by the kidnappers.

Mr. Aderanti spoke with journalists after visiting former President Olusegun Obasanjo at his residence in Abeokuta.

He assured that the police would rescue the victims.

    A reflection of your state of mind and what you are capable of!!. And you really think this is something to laugh about? God save this country.

    Rescue indeed.
    The police should stop deceiving the people by always using the word “RESCUE” each time kidnappers release victims whose ransom has been paid.
    Rescue refers to a situation in which the security agencies employ professional knowledge to storm a hideout and set free a victim. So far it is not on record that such operation ever happened in Nigeria, rather the police serve as negotiators if not brokers for settlement of ransom and when the victims are dropped at an agreed point, heavily armed police team takes delivery and heads for either the governor’s office or police headquarters, depending on the status of the victim, to boastfully read out a prepared lie to the people.

    Your own words – “..wetin the kidnappers did with 8 free fine ladies and girls for a whole two weeks, the kidnappers na bishops or catholic priests?…” Those are your words. Now, If the kidnappers actually “did” nothing to the victims you referred to as “fine ladies”, then it shows that the kidnappers’ mind are saner than yours. It shows you are indeed a savage and are a lower being than the kidnappers. Because you just told us what you expected them to do and what you would have done! You inadvertently betrayed what a pervert you are. A 1000 words cannot hide that anymore.
