A source was quoted as saying that one of the men escaped on Tuesday.
“He escaped from their midst because no ransom was paid. He is scared and has kept to himself. The police have maintained visible presence in the community, but it is not certain they know where the kidnappers are.”Another member of the community said some money was paid, adding that the victim arrived at the estate around 5am in a boat. He said, “A large amount of money was paid by his family for his release; he didn’t escape. He was released at about 5am.”
Meanwhile the Zonal Police Public Relations Officer, SP Muyiwa Adejobi, said the command is yet to confirm the development.
