A Chief Magistrate in Edo State, identified as Hassana Garuba, who was abducted along the Benin-Auchi road on Tuesday last week, has regained her freedom.
It was learnt that the magistrate was freed along with three others on Saturday.
The two of the other victims were said to be medical doctors.
The medical doctors were said to be in a commercial bus when they were randomly picked out by the kidnappers.
The magistrate and others were abducted in the area  after the kidnappers shot her police orderly.
‎A farmer, who ran into the kidnappers and their victims in the bush, was also said to have been tied to a tree.‎‎
The victims were released near Egba village, along the Adumagba-Akure express road.
 They were said to have been instructed by their abductors to trek along a particular route in the forest until they got to the road.‎
They later found their way to Egba junction, along the Benin-Auchi road, on motorcycles.‎
A source said the magistrate, who was reunited with her family members at about 4pm on Saturday, was in good health.
‎Sources said the families of the victims paid some ransom for their release.‎‎‎
But efforts to reach the police spokesman, Mr. Osifo Abiodun, for comments were not successful, as at the time of filing the report.‎
