Breaking: Ekiti Pupils, Teachers Regain Freedom From Kidnappers After 4 Days

The abducted pupils of the Apostolic Faith Nursery and Primary School in Emure Ekiti, who were kidnapped on Monday by armed herdsmen, have been released.

The children regained their freedom this evening after four days in captivity.

It is unclear whether Ransom was paid and how much.

According to a video posted on X, sources had said the children were kidnapped after school hours on their way to Eporo Ekiti in their school bus.

“The pupils were kidnapped while going to Eporo Ekiti from Emure on their school bus,” the source had said.

It was gathered that the incident caused panic among residents in the town who had appealed to security agencies for protection.

The incident had come amid the killing of two traditional rulers in the state by suspected bandits.

The victims were returning from Ogbe, a neighbouring town in Yagba West Local Government Area of Kogi State, when the gun-wielding men struck from a bush between the border communities of the state and Ekiti.

Their corpses were dropped at a bush path before it was evacuated by combined security agents and some vigilantes.
