Three staff of Ebomisi Secondary School, in Ovia North-East Local Government Area of Edo, who were kidnapped by suspected herdsmen have been released.
The school teachers had been reportedly abducted in Ugbogiobo village on their way home on Monday.
The incident was said to have sparked protest by students of the school, who set bonfires and barricaded the highway.
