The police had earlier identified the victims as Chidioze Eluwa, Chiemela Iroha, Okoro Ohowukwe, Ndubuizi Owuabueze, and Ibelegbo Chidinma.
They were reported to have been heading to Lagos from the eastern part of the country when gunmen stopped their vehicles and took them into the forest.

Ibelegbo was rescued in the early hours of Saturday and she was taken to the command’s headquarters in Abeokuta.
