Gunmen Abduct 4 Travellers On Ekiti Highway ‣ Star Potter

Four travelers have been abducted by gunmen in Irele-Ekiti, Ajoni Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Ekiti State.
The kidnap victims, it was gathered, would go to Ibadan, the capital of Oyo state, after attending an event in Kogi state.

According to a source, the travelers were ambushed by seven gunmen on the road between Irele-Ekiti and Oke-Ako around 11 a.m. on Sunday and taken to a nearby forest.
The sources said: “The four kidnapped persons came from an event in Kogi and were returning to Ibadan when they were attacked along the Irele-Ekiti and Oke-Ako road.

“We have not heard from the gunmen since yesterday (Sunday) and we hope they will contact their families, possibly for ransom.”
A community leader in Irele-Ekiti, chief Kehinde Abejide, who confirmed the incident to newsmen in Ado Ekiti yesterday, denounced ongoing kidnapping cases in the area and called for more security coverage in the ashes.
