Kidnappers of Fasasi Olanigan, a retired lecturer of the Federal Polytechnic, Ofa, Kwara State, were said to have fled when local hunters engaged them in a combat in Isaga area of Ogun State.
Olanigan was rescued barely 24 hours after he was abducted by bandits on his way from Abeokuta to Imasai on Wednesday.
He was rescued by the hunters who had thronged the bush to face the armed kidnappers.
NAIJALOADED recalls that the former Offa Polytechnic lecturer was waylaid by his abductor while driving from Abeokuta to Imasai. He was later dragged into the bush, leaving his car by the roadside.
On Thursday, a brother of the abductee, Abass Olanigan, confirmed that hunters rescued the retired don at Isaga axis.
While saying the man had reunited with his family, after receiving treatment in a hospital, Abass explained that â€œafter intensive combing of the forest in a combat method, the kidnappers abandoned the victim and fled.â€
