All officers of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) who were kidnapped on September 14 at Udege Junction, along Mararaba-Udege between Adoka, Nasarawa State have been released, Governor Abdullahi Sule said on Tuesday.

The governor made the announcement when he received the market enterprise development advisor Fatima Buhari in Lafia.

Sule commended the state commissioner of police Bola Longe, other security agencies and all those who worked hard to free the FRSC officers.

The governor put the number of kidnapped FRSC officers at 26, although the FRSC had said 10 of its officers were kidnapped while two were killed.

“I am happy to announce that all the 26 members of the FRSC that were recently kidnapped were released yesterday (Monday),” Sule said.

“I want to thank all the security agencies and all those who worked very hard to ensure that we achieved that feat.

“I want to thank them for all the efforts they are making in order to ensure that Nasarawa State remains safe.”

The officers were travelling for training at the FRSC Academy in Udi, Enugu State before the attack.
