The three reverend sisters who were kidnapped in Edo State have regained freedom after 53 days in captivity.

They were reportedly released on Saturday, January 6, 2018.

According to Punch, one of them, Veronica Ajayi was released in the evening while the two others returned late in the night.

The victims are from the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Convent in Iguoriakhi, Edo State.

Superior-general of the convent, Agatha Osarekhoe, was said to have confirmed the release, adding that the sisters returned unhurt.
