Unidentified gunmen have abducted the wife of the Chief of Staff to Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu. The police spokesman in the state, ASP Tee-Leo Ikoro, confirmed the news on Friday.
The news of the abduction comes barely one day after a prominent traditional ruler in Ondo State, Oba Israel Adeusi, the Olufon of Ifon, was shot by suspected kidnappers.
Mr. Olugbenga Ale’s wife was abducted in the Owena village, along Akure/Ondo Highway of Ondo State on Thursday evening and whisked into a nearby bush by the gunmen.
The woman was abducted alongside another woman while returning on a business trip.
ASP Ikoro said a detachment of police detectives have been searching the nearby bush in a bid to rescue the victims and apprehend the abductors.
