Gunmen abduct lawyer in Osun

The Oyo State Police Command on Sunday confirmed the abduction of two Indians in Ibadan, the state capital.

The command said in a statement that the Indians were abducted by unknown gunmen at a pharmaceutical firm along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Wednesday evening.

The police, however, said the foreigners’ whereabouts are still unknown.

According to the police, the victims were driving out of the company’s premises when the gunmen trailed them, opened fire on their car tyres, and forced the vehicle to a halt.

The Indians were later taken to an unknown destination by the hoodlums.

The men’s abduction was another confirmation of the worsening insecurity in Nigeria.

Gunmen had in March abducted two Indians and a Lebanese in the northern part of the country.

The foreigners were later released after their employers paid an undisclosed amount to the criminals as ransom.
