Victims of Tuesday’s kidnap attack in a hotel at Ayetoro-Ekiti in Ido/Osi Local Government Area of Ekiti have been freed by their abductors.

Ekiti Police spokesman, ASP Sunday Abutu, told The Nation the abductees were freed at Ikun Ekiti, Moba Council Area after a serious manhunt by men of the command.

Abutu clarified only two persons were abducted during the attack contrary to the circulated report that four persons were abducted inside the hotel.
