Abducted RUN student in Ogun regains freedom, reunites with family.

A 17-years old 100 level Mass Communication student of Redeemers University (RUN) Ede, Osun State, Akinlaja Ireoluwa, reportedly abducted on Saturday at Sagamu interchange of Lagos-Ibadan expressway has regained freedom.

Ogun State government  announced this cheering news in a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the state governor, Mr Kunle Somorin. 

The abduction of Ireoluwa is coming on the heels of the abduction and subsequent killing of one Miss Odeh Happiness, a student of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY) Abeokuta, along Iperu Remo road in Ikenne local government area of the state.

Somorin in the statement said the governor of the state, Prince Dapo Abiodun disclosed that Ireoluwa, who was kidnapped while on his way to the Redemption Camp on Lagos-Ibadan expressway, escaped from his abductors as security operatives swooped on their den, in Ikorodu, Lagos

Abiodun has therefore vowed that there will be no-hiding place for criminals in the state, just as he revealed that the 17-year-old kidnap victim,  Ireoluwa has escaped from captivity.

The governor was quoted to have said  "the victim, Akinlaja Ireoluwa Oluwatomiwa is a student of the Redeemers University in Osun State. He was on his way to join his parents when he was kidnapped. 

"Our security men had trailed the kidnappers to Ikorodu, where the victim was being held hostage. Thier arrival on the scene had given an opportunity for the victim to escape from captivity. 

"We are happy that the victim escaped unhurt. He has since been reunited with his parents," the statement said.

The statement further highlighted that the security operatives are still on the trail of the kidnappers, adding that no effort would be spared to rid the State of undesirable elements. 

The Governor appreciated the sacrifices of the security personnel and tasked them not relent in their commitment at restoring public confidence and safety on the highways always.

Abiodun said "Ogun State has zero tolerance for terrorists, bandits, kidnappers or ritual murderers and other criminals by whatever name they are call. Our security system has been fortified to repel them; we will smoke them out and visit the full wrath of the law on them".
