The two female students of the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ayetoro Campus, Ogun State, who were kidnapped on Sunday 14th, March, have regained freedom.

The students, Adeyemo Precious and Oyefule Abiola studying Forestry and Wildlife Management and Agricultural Economics respectively were abducted on their way back from a reading session about 9 pm on Sunday when the attackers stormed Igbole Aibo Quarter area of Ayetoro, in Yewa North Local Government Area of State.

It was said that the abductors reached the families the following morning demanding a sum of 50million naira as Ransom.
