Five wedding guests abducted in Anambra State last Monday have been released.
A family source and the police confirmed their release when they spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Awka.
Assailants abducted the wedding guests at gunpoint on the Akpo-Nkpologwu Road in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra while returning from a wedding.
The family source said they were released during the week hale and hearty and had since reunited with their families, but did not say whether ransom was paid to secure their release.
The source said also that the abductors were still keeping the Toyota Camry car the freed men were travelling in.
“We appeal to them to kindly release the car,’’ he pleaded.
The police spokesman in Anambra, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga, also confirmed the release of the men when he spoke with NAN on Sunday.
