Gunmen kidnap poultry manager in Ogun

0 comment 2 minutes read

Some unknown gunmen reportedly abducted a poultry manager, Tunde Osifowokan, in Idowa, Ogun State.

The perpetrators, according to reports, masked their faces in order to evade identification.

The victim was whisked away on Monday afternoon when the assailants stormed the community.

The gunmen, who arrived at the poultry in a Gestapo-like manner, shot in the air repeatedly and took Osifowokan away after a few minutes.

Osifowokan was kidnapped just two days after the reporrted abduction of one Hausa farmer in the community.

This platform gathered that the kidnappers initially enquired about the whereabouts of the owner of the farm but, upon learning about his abscence, resorted to kidnapping the farm manager instead.

Incidentally, Osifowokan is a sibling of the owner.

Speaking on the development, the Sobaloju of Idowa, Chief Yusuf Olusanya, confirmed the incident.

Chief Olusanya said: “Yes, the incident is true. The hoodlums, according to what I heard, came wearing masks and shooting sporadically. They demanded that the owner of the poultry farm identify himself, but since none of the workers was the owner, they kept quiet.

“However, one of them stood up, and when the hoodlums asked him to identify himself, he said he was the younger brother of the owner of the farm. That was how they went away with him.”

He added: “While trying to escape, they shot at one driver in the neck; they riddled his vehicle, which he used in carrying blocks, with bullets.”

Ogun State Commissioner of Police Abiodun Alamutu, while reacting to the development, vowed that the force would ensure the release of the abductee.

He said: “ There was a kidnap, but only one person was involved and not two; if they were looking for another person, it may not be a kidnap. If the person has not returned home, they should give us another 24 hours before making an official complaint.”
