According to the governor, two of the kidnappers and wife of  the kingpin  have been arrested by the Police.
Fayose noted that one Olumide, 31, and one Folorunsho both from Esure Ekiti were arrested between Ikere and Iju while trying to escape.
According to a press statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Idowu Adelusi in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday‎, the wife of the leader of the kidnappers, Austin, who was believed to be preparing food and other items for them was also arrested according to the governor.
A manhunt has been launched for the remaining five to six of the kidnappers who are believed to hail from Benin and its environs in Edo State.
