After seven days in captivity, pupils and staff of Apostolic Faith Group School, Emure, in Ekiti state, were on Sunday morning set free by their abductors.
Those who regained their freedom included five students and three staff of the school while the driver identified as Taye Rasaki was killed by the dare-devil kidnappers.

The gunmen had on Monday ambushed a bus conveying the schoolchildren and staff of the school back to their homes at Eporo on the road and whisked nine among the occupants away, leaving the bus on the road.

The kidnappers were said to have reached out to the families of the abducted pupils and demanded N100m ransom for each of the nine persons held captive in their den.

The abductors, however, on Thursday reduced the ransom to N15m for all the abductees with a threat to kill the victims if the money was not paid on time.

However, on Sunday morning, reprieve came their way as the bandits set them free
