A 3-year-old girl, Mary Fashina kidnapped in Akure, Ondo State capital last week has been set free.
A source close to the family confirmed this to newsmen in Akure.

“The gunmen allegedly seized the young girl with a threat to shoot the mother and the other child before they zoomed off after holding the key of the woman’s car to prevent her from chasing them.
