Two Professors and other members of staff of the University of Abuja who were kidnapped recently have regained their freedom.
Some criminal elements suspected to be kidnappers had invaded the staff quarters of the university on Monday and whisked some residents to unknown destination.
A day after their abduction, the kidnappers contacted families of the victims and demanded N300 million as condition for their release.
But the Police Public Relations Officer of the Federal Capital Territory Command, DSP Josephine Adeh confirmed their release on Friday morning.
According to her, the development followed the efforts of the command in a joint operation with other security agencies.
She stated that some suspects linked to the crime have been nabbed by security operatives.
The PPRO was, however, unable to give details of the development as at press time.
