According to the man whose sister-in-law was one of the abducted, the other seven kidnapped corps members were also released at Choba in the Obio-Akpor Local Government Area.

In a statement on Wednesday, the man said that the parents of the freed NYSC members had admitted to paying to ensure their release.

The Rivers State Police Command has not yet officially announced their release.
