Motunrayo Rafiu, the law school student who was kidnapped along Kabba-Obajana road last Tuesday, has been released by her abductors.
It was reliably gathered on Sunday that Motunrayo and other abductees were released on Saturday.
It was gathered that Motunrayo Rafiu, who recently graduated from Olabisi Onabanjo University Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State, was on her way to resume at the Abuja campus of the Nigerian Law School when she was kidnapped along with four others.
Also released is Ayo Meseko, a younger brother of member, Kogi State House of Assembly Service Commission, Hon. Duro Meseko.
Ayo Meseko, who was kidnapped along with four others on Kabba – Obajana road on their way to Lokoja, spent five days in the hands of his abductors before his eventual release.
Confirming the report, Hon Duro Meseko, a former member House of Representatives, expressed his appreciation to God for making it possible for his younger brother to return alive and thanked the Chairman of the Commission, Alhaji Andas Abdulmalik, Permanent Members and staff of the Commission, the Speaker of Kogi State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mathew Kolawole and the Staff of Kogi State House of the Assembly for their support and prayers.
Hon. Meseko, while narrating efforts made to get his brother released from the kidnappers, called on the security agencies in the state to ensure more of their presence in areas identified as flash points where these criminals carry out their nefarious activities.
