Another woman kidnapped in Ondo


The woman was whisked away by abductors at about 1 am on Saturday night.

Barely twenty four hours after a female journalist working with the Nigerian Television Authority, NTA, regained freedom from her abductors, another woman; Kehinde Olusanya, has been kidnapped at Ayedun quarters of Akure, the ondo State capital.

She was whisked away to an unknown destination at about 1 am on Saturday night.

Ms. Olusanya, who is in her early fifties, is the sister of a traditional ruler, the Asamo of Akure, late Josiah Olusanya.

She lives with her twin sisters and run a bouquet and beautician’s shop inside the Akure Town hall shopping mall.

Details of the abduction are sketchy, but it was gathered that the kidnappers, in the middle of the night, stormed Ayedun quarters, where Ms. Olusanya resides and took her away.

The attack came as Olubunmi Oke, a female journalist working with the NTA, Akure, regained her freedom on Sunday after days in captivity.

Mrs. Oke , a nursing mother, was kidnapped on Thursday by four gunmen after closing from work at Oba Ile area of Akure, the Ondo State capital.

She was said to have been whisked away shortly after she drove into her residence after closing from work.

Although, the abductors demanded ransom, it was not clear whether any money was paid before the journalist was released.
