Exactly one week after they were kidnapped at Akere Village in Ifewara, Osun state, three Chinese expatriates were on Monday released by their abductors.

The expatriates were reportedly kidnapped at a mining site after a disagreement with their labourers around 6:00 pm last week Monday.

The labourers were said to have contacted families of the victims and demanded a sum of N500 million.
