Gunmen abduct passengers along Ilesa-Akure Expressway

Some unknown gunmen late Sunday abducted some passengers along the Ilesa-Akure Expressway.

Details of how the abduction took place were not immediately available but Prince Deji Aladesawe, the Osun State Coordinator of Oodua Peoples Congress, said on Monday that the kidnapping took place between Erin Ijesa and Omo Ijesa both located along Ilesa-Akure Expressway.

Also commenting, the Commandant, Osun Amotekun Corps, Brig. Gen. Bashir Adewinbi (retd.), said that operatives of the corps had been deployed in the area.

Adewinbi, however, said it was not clear how many of the passengers had been abducted.

When contacted, Yemisi Opalola, the spokesperson for the Osun State Police Command, explained that two people were abducted, adding that one of the victims had been rescued.
