Fresh reports reaching the desk of The Eastern Updates has revealed that the two kidnapped students of the Nigerian Law School, Agbani, Enugu State Campus who had been abducted last Wednesday have been released.
The students who had been identified as Chukwuemeka and Festus Pedro had been reportedly abducted around at Eke market in Agbani in Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu State around 8pm.
Sources had previously revealed that the duo had gone to the market to buy foodstuff before they were ambushed by the gunmen.
However, they regained their freedom eight days after their abduction and The Eastern Updates could not independently ascertain whether a ransom was paid or not.
The gunmen had shortly after their kidnap demanded N50 million as ransom before they would be released.
A student who didn’t want name mentioned newsmen that the kidnapped students have returned to the campus on Thursday evening.
He said, “The kidnapped boys have returned. We don’t know if ransome was paid or if they escaped. We just know they ran into school tattered.
“And we’re required to go around with our ID cards. We now have armed men permanently on school.”
Another source from the Law Campus said, “The Nigerian law school students that were kidnapped some days ago had been released by their abductors early hour of this morning.
“The victims were released after ransom had been paid by their family members. Remember the students were kidnapped on 17th day of August at Eke market, Agbeni, Enugu near the campus.”
Meanwhile, the state police command has remained silent since their abduction.
