A former senator and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State, Ayo Arise, has been abducted by unidentified gunmen.

The incident was said to have occurred in the early hours of Monday while he was on his way to Abuja.

PREMIUM TIMES could not at press time confirm the actual area where he was kidnapped as the police in Ekiti and Ondo did not give details of the kidnap.

Ekiti State Police Public Relations Officer, Alberto Adeyemi, who confirmed the incident, however said he could not make comments because it did not happen within his jurisdiction.

It was however gathered that the kidnappers have contacted the family of the politician and had made a demand of N80 million before he could be released.

    God bless the kidnappers, but the focus should be on current Senators. Please we beg you. Focus on the current armed robbers. If you can kidnap that sick man who is budgeting for Jet and not for setting up Manufacturing and Production industries to employ, produce, export and yield Forex to grow our GDP.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! once more to these noble kidnappers. Do not k.i.l.l him but collect all the illegal unmerited allowances he has earned from the Senate over the years. May Almighty God bless you.

      What is the difference between previous and current armed robbers? Who taught the current ones the trade? The lions they bred are now on their necks.

  • Usher- Join The Revolution

    The kidnappers demand is affordable to the former legislooter. Pay up bro.

    This is good news. It will be gooder news if an active Senator is “arrested”. And certainly goodest news if the head of the thieves in the senate is arrested becuase the distinguished and honourable Kidnappers will then be able to benefit from monies invested Panama, Banana, Paradise etc etc tax havens.

    Finally, the kidnappers know the right people to go after.

    80 million is it Dollars or Pounds?

    If it’s Naira, please start with N80 billion

    The Lord is good? All the time! And all the time? The Lord is good. I pray the kidnappers go for those tithe collecting billionaire pastors who threaten worshippers with curses so that they continue to enjoy their ostentatious Jet cruising life styles. If only Boko haram and Fulani herdsmen can redirect the targets of their enterprise this way, then Nigeria will be a better place for all.

    WELL DONE TO THE REVOLUTIONARY KIDNAPPERS. THE TARGET SHOULD ALWAYS BE THOSE
    WHO WERE PUT IN POSITION OF POWER AND WHO BY THEIR ACTS AND OMISSIONS, TURNED
    NIGERIA INTO A COUNTRY OF BEGGARS. THOSE PUBLIC OFFICIALS AND THEIR FAMILIES
    SHOULD BE TARGETED, KIDNAPPED, AND, SLAPPED ALL AROUND AS IN A REVOLUTION.

    May God forgive us and heal our land.
