Nigeria In One Minute

Victim exposes ‘kidnappers’ community in Ondo where 40 men carry rifles’



ONDO State, since it was created 42 years ago, had not seen the situation it witnessed in the last two weeks, no thanks to the activities of kidnappers.

Highways in the three senatorial districts of the state have become a snare as kidnappers lay siege.

Fear gripped motorists plying the highways. No fewer than 15 persons, including medical personnel, lecturers and civil servants, have been abducted on the Akure/Owo/Akoko highway within the last two weeks.

One of those kidnapped was a heavily pregnant medical doctor, Jumoke Aiyeku.

The victims are Bunmi Falodun, his wife, Ronke, and mother-in-law, Ayewumi Ogunsemore.
