The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr. Femi Joseph, who confirmed this, said the victims were hale and hearty. He refused to give further information about how the nuns and their driver were rescued.
According to him, “all I can say for now is that the Reverend Sisters and their driver have been rescued by our men and the intelligent squad sent by the IGP from Abuja.
“We are still on the trail of the suspects and we will soon arrest them because we are presently combing the area where we rescued them.
“They quickly abandoned the kidnapped victims when they discovered that we were closer to where they hid them.
“No ransom was paid before we secured their release, but very soon, the police will arrest those kidnappers”.
