Five JAMB staff, NSCDC operatives that were kidnapped in Kogi have all been released

The Kogi State Police Command has confirmed the release of all the five Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) staffs kidnapped along the Obajana-Kabba road, over a week ago.

Also, all the five personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) that were kidnapped around Ajegwu, along the Ayingba road have secured their freedom.

The police command, in a statement today, stated that all the Kidnapped victims were hale and hearty and have reunited with their families. It however did not disclose if any ransom was paid to secure their freedom.

The freed JAMB workers were said to have been from the examination body’s head office in Abuja and were headed for Kogi West, ahead of the mock UTME which held last Tuesday while the NSCDC operatives were abducted on their way for a promotion examination in neighbouring Benue State.
