No fewer than five persons were in the wee hours of Saturday abducted by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers in Ekiti state.
The DAILY POST reports that the latest onslaught was coming barely two days after INEC Administrative Secretary in the state, Dr muslim Omoleke was seized at Iwaraja town, in Osun state, but released on Friday night in Ilesha.
Local sources told our state correspondent in Ado Ekiti that the five persons abducted, included a Pastor, simply referred to as Ojo, his driver , Jimoh and three others.
They were said to have been seized while traveling in two vehicles at a location along Ise Ekiti road, in Ise/Orun local government area of Ekiti state.
The motive of the abduction was not immediately known as at the time of filing these reports, as those kidnapped are believed not to belong to the category of well-known or wealthy individuals in the society.
But the incident has since been confirmed by the state police command.
The Police Public Relations Officer (ppro) Adeyem Albertoi,(DSP) told DAILY POST that two of the abducted persons had been recovered while his men were on the trail of the hoodlums towards securing safe release of the three others.
He however denied knowledge of whether a pastor or imam was among those kidnapped.
He urged residents to help the police by exposing strange faces and movements around them.
He warned criminals to immediately give up their evil tendencies or relocate from the state in their own interest, saying their days of nemesis are near if they failed to change their evil ways.
