“They took them to our office in Isua and released them after giving them necessary attention.
“The vehicle and its driver have also been released to the police. We are now on the trail of the kidnappers to rescue the remaining three victims.”
Adeleye while addressing journalists at a media briefing on Saturday said the three remaining travellers had regained their freedom.
“I can confirm to you that we have rescued the three remaining victims and they will be reunited with their families today,” he said.
