Police Public Relations Officer in Nasarawa State, ASP Ramhan Nansel confirmed that the the two girls have been released. 

Nansel said the the NPC commissioner's children were rescued due to the pressure mounted on the kidnappers who were hiding around a mountain in Nasarawa Eggon Local Government Area of the state.

The victims have been reunited with their family after undergoing medical examination at Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital. When asked whether ransom was paid to secure their release, the PPRO said the command had no knowledge of such.
