Kidnapped Oyo family released, Police silent on ransom

Members of the Oyeniyi family of Ajaawa, a suburb of Ogbomoso and their Ibadan-based hotelier breadwinner, Mr. Oyedokun Oyeniyi and eight other members of their family who were recently abducted by unknown gunmen have been released.

It was gathered that the nine captives were released on Tuesday, but the source was silent on amount paid as ransom.

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.”
