Alayaki who was seen posing in a photograph with the victims confirmed the authenticity of the photograph.

He said, “This is not photoshop.

“They have been released. We will soon call a press conference.

“I was the Chief negotiator to those people.”

Meanwhile, the abducted doctor, whose identity could not be ascertained as of the time of filing this report, is a dental therapist in the state hospital.

He was said to have been abducted while on his way to work on Monday evening in Ijebu-Igbo, Ijebu-North Local Government Area of the state.
