Gunmen have abducted scores of travellers on the Benin-Owo Expressway in Ifon, the headquarters of Ose Local Government Area of Ondo State.
A relation of one of the victims said, “But on getting to Ifon area, the hoodlums ambushed and whisked all the occupants of the vehicle into the bush. All the occupants of the vehicle were kidnapped since yesterday (Saturday) and nobody has heard anything about them since then”.
The Ondo Police Command’s spokesman, SP Funmilayo Odunlami, acknowledged the event but claimed she was unable to determine how many people had been kidnapped.
“Our men and other security agencies are already in the forest to rescue the victims unhurt, while an investigation into the incident has commenced”, Odunlami added.
