Olufunmilayo Abiona, the wife of the chairman of Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Osun State University chapter, has regained freedom from her abductors. Details of her release are still not known as of press time, but her husband, Dr. Seye Abiona, has confirmed the news. Olufunmilayo was said to have been dropped off by the kidnappers along Ilesa-Akure Expressway in Osun State, Tuesday afternoon. The incident was reported to have thrown the academic community into jubilation, while the police claimed to have closed in on two of the kidnappers. Olufunmilayo was kidnapped last Friday night after closing from her shop located a few meters from the school, in Oshogbo, the Osun State capital. NEWSBREAK.NG could not ascertain if any ransom was paid for her release, but the Tribune in its report Saturday quoted a source who claimed the kidnappers had demanded N50 million.
