Three female primary school teachers abducted by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers at Orhogbua Primary School in Ekhehuan village, Edo State have regained their freedom after two weeks in captivity.
It was gathered that they were released at about 3.am yesterday at the Ekhehuan axis of the state.
They were said to have called members of their family who went to pick them up. The teachers, Patience Osadoplor, Momodu Aisha and Patience Oroghene were seized and whisked away at gunpoint from the school on July 30.
Their abductors had initially demanded N60 million ransom for their release, but later slashed the amount to N7.5 million. As at press time, it could not be ascertained if any ransom was paid before the teachers were released.
