The zonal spokesperson, SP Muyiwa Adejobi, said on Wednesday that the police had deployed more personnel in the area to find the victims.
It was reported reported that masked gunmen, numbering nine, had emerged from the waterways around 8am on Saturday.

It was reported that the kidnappers demanded N300m to free each of the victim, totalling N1.4bn.
It was also reported that one of the abducted landlords escaped from the kidnappers den on Tuesday.
The zonal police spokesperson, SP Adejobi, said, “The Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Ali Abdulmajid, sent some operatives to the area, but they were not aware of any escape.
“We have deployed more men in the area and our helicopters are also hovering in the community. I want to assure you that soon, we will rescue the victims safely.”
