Read News!: Gunmen strike again, abduct 14 in Kogi; Gunmen struck again in Kogi State on Monday and abducted 14 people from Okunland. Between Life and Egbeda, in the Ijumu council region of the county, the victims were abducted.
The wife of the late People's Democratic Party Zonal Leader, late Barr Matthew Kola-Ojo, Mrs. Kola-Ojo, was among the abducted victims. It was her first travel since her husband's obligatory mourning period concluded.
Five individuals were later released by the kidnappers, but the wife of the late PDP Zonal chairman is still being held, hostage.
He also said the kidnappers have established contact with a relative of Mrs. Kola-Ojo but are yet to specifically demand a ransom.
The person they (kidnappers) called was a family uncle to the woman, telling him they have Mrs. Kola-Ojo in their custody. But before they could state their ransom, the man’s phone experienced a flat battery.
We are hoping that they will call back today.“I got the information about the Kidnapped saga at about 10:30 am and we started shouting to those that matter including the Senior Security Adviser to the Governor for help.
