Amotekun combs forests as gunmen abduct seven Osun travellers

Some gunmen have abducted seven passengers along Ilesha-Akure road, near Iwaraja junction, and demanded payment of ransom before releasing them.

The abduction, according to sources, occurred on Monday and the victims were said to have been moved to a forest in Iwaraja.

The identities of the victims were not clear as of the time of filing this report, although they were said to be members of a transport union.

But the Osun State Coordinator of Oodua Peoples Congress, Prince Deji Aladesawe, who confirmed the abduction to The PUNCH, said, “It is true that seven passengers were abducted on the road late Monday. But three of the victims were released today (Tuesday). Two women and a man were released. Their abductors also told the victims that they are Fulani bandits.

The Corps Commandant, Osun Amotekun Corps, Brigadier General Bashir Adewinbi (retd.), said his men in collaboration with other security agencies were working to rescue others in the custody of the abductors.

Osun Police Spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola, could not be reached through her mobile line as calls to the line did not go through.

  1. THIS ACTION BY OSUN STATE GOVERNMENT IS A MEDICINE AFTER DEATH . THEIR SECURITY PERSONEL OUGHT TO HAVE CLEARED THE FOREST BEFORE THE BANDITS ATTACK……..AND THE QUESTION REMAINS ” ……..DO YOU HAVE AMOTEKUN IN THE STATE, THAT CAN GO INTO THE FOREST ….”
