The Nigerian Army, 32 Artillery Brigade, Owena Barracks, Ondo State, have rescued two kidnapped victims in the state.
The victims, Aremo Abiodun, a 50-year-old driver, and Agnes Afogun, 50-year-old trader were both rescued in Ugbe Akoko.

The gunmen had demanded a sum of N30m from the husband of Mrs Afogun before they would be released.
Speaking on their freedom, Acting Assistant Director, Army to Public Relations in Ondo State, Mr Ayorinde Omojokun, told SaharaReporters that they tracked down the location of the hoodlums with the support of the IGP-IRT team at Iboropa forest.
