Gunmen kill one, kidnap four travellers in Ondo

No fewer than four travellers were reportedly abducted by some gunmen on Monday, on the Owo-Ikare Expressway, in the Ose/Oba area of Ondo State.

It was gathered that the victims were travelling from Ikare, the headquarters of the Akoko North-East Local Government Area of the state, to Akure when the hoodlums waylaid them.

The hoodlums reportedly dragged the passengers out of the vehicle and took four of them away after shooting one of the occupants of the vehicle, who resisted the abduction.

The incident happened on the same spot, where a traditional ruler, Oluyani of Iyani-Akoko, Oba Sunday Daodu, was kidnapped a few months ago.

“The kidnappers have contacted the families of the victims, demanding N1m ransom for each of the victims,” the source added.

The Police Public Relations Officer of the state police command, Mr. Femi Joseph, who confirmed the incident, added that the command had commenced investigation into the case.
