A staff of Osogbo local government, identified as Kolawole, whose vehicle was also attacked said the abductors attacked commuters on the road around 4.30pm.
He said, “The kidnappers were about five in number and spoke in Yoruba. They stopped a vehicle in front of our own vehicle. The men dressed in black and were armed with sophisticated weapons.
“The driver of the vehicle in front of us attempted to run and the vehicle was shot at. We all fled into the bush. The men spoke in fluent Yoruba language.”
The spokesperson for the Osun Police Command, Folasade Odoro, confirmed the abduction.
“But the information is still sketchy for now. Our men are still in the bush. We are on the trail of their abductors,” she said.
