Three Abducted Lagos School Girls Rescued by Nigerian Police as They're Set to Undergo Medical Tests

The three female students of Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary, Ikorodu, Lagos state, who were kidnapped from their hostel on Monday night, have been rescued. 

The spokesperson for Lagos State Police Command,  Dolapo Badmus, has confirmed the rescue of three teenage girls abducted at the Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary, Agunfoye Lugbusi, by unknown gunmen on March 1.
 
"They were rescued in the early hours of this morning at Igbokuta area of Lagos State," said Ms. Badmos, a Superintendent of Police.
 
The circumstances of their freedom are still hazy, but they were said to have been rescued at Igbo Okuta area of Ikorodu by the security agencies in an operation that started in the wee hours of Sunday. 
 
It was gathered that the girls identified as Timilehin Olusa, Tofunmi Popo Olaniyan and Deborah Akinayo, have been taken to an undisclosed hospital for medical examination. 
 
A senior police officer told a corespondent: "We were certain that the girls would be rescued alive because we had good intelligence on the operations of these gangsters. We had them cornered and it was just a matter of time for them to reach a cul-de-sac."
 
The kidnappers reportedly contacted Victor Ayo Olusa, father of the first victim, to demand a ransom of N200m, which was later lowered to N20m per student. 
 
Lagos state commissioner for information and culture, Steve Ayorinde, also confirmed the good news saying. "I can also confirm that no ransoms were paid," he said.
