Ikoro said one of the players, who managed to escape, has been rescued by officers of the State Police Command.
“We have been able to rescue one of the players and our men are already in the bush after the kidnappers.
“I will get the details of the incident as soon as I get the information from the Divisional Police Officer of Ipele Owo,” the PPRO said.
NAN gathered that the two abducted players were on their way to their base in Akure from Owerri , after a holiday was declared for virtually all NPFL players following the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic in the country.
The duo, who were former players of the Sunshine Stars FC of Akure, were kidnapped at Ipele town on Benin-Akure Expressway in Owo Local Government Area of the state.
