The 42 persons abducted by bandits in Government Science College Kagara, Niger State have regained freedom.
The abductees include 27 students, 3 staff and 12 members of their family.
Sources said the abductees, who were at a different location from the kidnapped passengers, are also on their way to Minna.
The abducted passengers were said to be in Minna but yet to get to the Government House to meet Governor Abubakar Sani-Bello, who will receive them officially.
Though as at the time of filling this report, it was unknown if ransom was paid to release the students and teachers.
Recall that the Federal Government has insisted that it would not pay any ransom to secure the release of abductees.
