Gunmen Kidnap First Class Oba in Ondo

A first class traditional ruler, the Oniyani of Iyawo Akoko in Akoko South West Local Government Area of Ondo State, Oba Joel Sunday Daodu, was late Saturday kidnapped by gunmen.

The monarch, THISDAY gathered, was kidnapped along Ose Oba Akoko axis of Ikare-Owo road almost the same spot where the Regent of Akungba Akoko, Princess Toyin Omosowon, was kidnapped about two years ago.

It was gathered that the monarch was riding in the same vehicle with his second in command when the abductors struck.

The monarch’s abductors have demanded a ransom of N15 million before the Oba could regain his freedom.
