The Anglican Bishop of Jebba Diocese, Kwara State, Rt. Rev Oluwaseun  Aderogba, his wife and driver who were kidnapped by gunmen last Sunday night have been released.

The Oyo State Police Command said in a statement released yesterday night by the Police Public Relations Officer for Oyo State, Adewale Osifeso, said the couple and their driver were released unhurt around 6:20pm on Tuesday.

He said the three of them had been reunited with their families.

He said the hoodlums were pressurised into freeing their captives because of the heat turned on them by the massive deployment of the police in the area for search and rescue operations.

He did not state whether ransom was paid for their release or not but their abductors were said to have demanded N50 million ransom immediately after they were kidnapped on Sunday night.
