The remaining members of the Christ Apostolic Church, CAC, Oke Igan, Akure, Ondo state who were abducted last Friday have regained their freedom after the church and family members paid huge ransome.

The 19 choristers were abducted along Ifon-Benin road on their way to a funeral ceremony.

The kidnappers had demanded #50million before releasing them but it was not yet known how much they collected before releasing them last night.

But eight of them had escaped from the suspected kidnappers on Saturday, the following day.
