According to available information, there are plans to move the students to Abuja through the Murtala Mohammed Airport in Lagos State on Friday (today).

The students, who were kidnapped on May 25, had remained in captivity despite promises that they would be rescued in a short time.

The students were released in Ogun state following talks between the abductors and some government officials.

Mr. Ayorinde, however, confirmed the release of the kids through a terse message on his Facebook page.

The students had been abducted two months ago when the kidnappers used the Imeru/Iji waterway to access the swampy forest bordering the school.

The incident occurred seven months after gunmen kidnapped two teachers and four pupils of the same school, although the victims were later freed.

The boys- Peter Jonah, Isiaq Rahmon, Adebayo George, Judah Agbausi, Pelumi Philips and Farouq Yusuf, were abducted on May 24, 2017 with the kidnappers initially demanding N100 million ransom.

For the Lagos State Government, the students are to undergo medical examination to ascertain the state of their health.
