Unspecified numbers of passengers have allegedly been abducted in Obokun Local Government Area of Osun State at Odo-Osun, near Imesi-Ile.
The Nation reports that the commercial bus en route to Osun State from Ekiti State was ambushed at Odo-Osun, on Ila Road, on Monday July 5 at about 1.45 p.m. The gunmen led the passengers into the forest.
We discovered that they abducted some passengers from another two vehicles while we were searching for the Odo-Osun abduction victims. The hostages were taken to the village of Ipanda. They have demanded ransom. "Those who did it spoke Fulfulde, while the person negotiating the random spoke Yoruba."
Volunteers of Kiriji Heritage Defenders, Hunter’s group, as well as the police were already combing the bush to secure the travelers’ release, according to another source.
The state police command has yet to comment on this development.
