Three persons have been kidnapped in the Igoba area of Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State, by some gunmen.
It was gathered that the kidnappers invaded the community on Thursday night and abducted four men but one of the victims escaped.
The victims were identified simply as Adeseye, Paul and ‘vulcaniser.’
The monarch of Igoba Community, Oba Adinlewa Adeniyi, appealed to the state government to beef up security in the area, which, according to him, had now become a safe haven for kidnappers.
Meanwhile, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mrs. Funmilayo Odunlami, when contacted, said: “Nobody reported such issue to the police. Thanks.”
