“They have been released. The deputy governor of Ondo state called me and I spoke with my son. They are on their way to Lagos.”

Reports states that they were released at Aboto Creek in Ilaje local government of Ondo state on today’s afternoon, June 28.

Another parent of one of the boys explained that details of their arrival point in Lagos still remain sketchy, as the Lagos State government would likely take over the case.

“You know it is a government case. They are likely going to take them to Alausa (Lagos State Government Secretariat),” she said.

The Lagos State Commissioner

“It took a while, but the security operatives rose to the occasion eventually. Kudos!!!,” he wrote Friday afternoon.

The hoodlums reportedly broke through the school’s fence to gain access to the premises.

The names of the students abducted have been revealed to be Peter Jonah, Isiaq Rahmon, Adebayo George, Judah Agbausi, Pelumi Philips and Farouq Yusuf.

Recall that few days ago, the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo assured Nigerians that the Epe students will be regained back to their parents.
