After a harrowing ordeal, the schoolchildren and teachers of Apostolic Faith Group of Schools in Emure-Ekiti, Ekiti State, who were abducted by armed men, have finally been released.

The release comes after a period of uncertainty, during which the abductors demanded a ransom of N100 million for their freedom.

Despite initial fears that the kidnappers would harm the children if the ransom was not paid, the victims have been safely released.

The incident occurred on Monday evening when the assailants forcefully took the children and their teachers.

There were concerns for their safety, especially after unconfirmed reports emerged on Saturday suggesting their release, which the police later debunked.

However, on Sunday morning, a video clip began circulating, showing the freed pupils and teachers seated on the floor, visibly exhausted from their ordeal.

The authorities are yet to provide details regarding the circumstances of their release and whether any arrests have been made in connection with the abduction.
