The kidnappers who kept the girls in a forest for four days were said to have demanded for N10 million ransom from the parents of the two girls aged 13 years and 20 years.
The kidnappers had a brush up with the police at the collection point of the ransom which led to a shoot out where one of the kidnappers was killed, another was shot in the leg was arrested while one escaped.
The arrested kidnapper took the police to the forest where the girls were rescued.
Confirming the incident, the Niger State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Bala Elkana stated that the police in the state was determined to rid the state of kidnappers.
He warned kidnappers in the state to relocate because the Police will not give them any room to operate while advising residents to be more security conscious.
