He also confirmed that the NSCDC officers were released on Sunday and had since reunited with their families.

The police spokesman could, however, not confirm whether ransom was paid before the victims were released by their abductors.

The kidnapped officers were on their way to Makurdi, Benue State, to write promotion examination when they were kidnapped while the JAMB officials were travelling to Kwara to supervise the UTME mock examination.
