A National Diploma student of the Nasarawa State-owned Isa Mustapha Agwai Polytechnic, Lafia, Taye Ajoke, who was kidnapped on Monday, September 25, has regained her freedom after a ransom of N300,000 was paid on September 27.
Ajoke was reportedly abducted after heavily armed men shooting sporadically attacked her residence, which is two kilometres away from the Polytechnic, and took her to an unknown destination.
The incident left two other students and an admission seeker with bullet wounds.
However, while speaking with the President of the Students Union Government of the polytechnic, Ekom Ayaka, she said Ajoke’s kidnappers had earlier called to demand for N50 Million but later reduced the ransom to N500,000 when they noticed that her family and well-wishers could not meet up with their earlier request.
He also disclosed that after several appeals to the kidnappers for a further reduction of the ransom, they agreed to release her in exchange for N300,000.
