A traditional chief in Ijan Ekiti, Gbonyin Local Government Area of Ekiti State, Chief Emmanuel Obafemi, and two other kidnapped cocoa merchants have been freed by kidnappers after paying  N4 million as ransom.

Information gathered revealed that they were released along Ikere road around 3am on Wednesday and had been reunited with their families.

Obafemi was kidnapped on his farm located along Ado-Ijan road on Thursday while the two cocoa merchants, who are residents of a farmstead called Ilupeju-Ijan, were picked up on Saturday along Ijan-Ise road.
