Police react to Viral video of Kidnapped Travellers along Ondo-Ekiti boundary

Some gunmen have reportedly kidnapped an unspecified number of travellers along the boundary of Ondo and Ekiti States, specifically on Akure- Iju-Ikere Ekiti road.

In a viral video circulating on social media in the last few days, the incident was alleged to have occurred between Iju and Ikere-Ekiti when the suspected kidnappers attacked the vehicles the passengers were travelling in.

At the scene of the incident in the video, two vehicles, identified as a Toyota Corolla and a white Toyota Highlander, were discovered abandoned with none of the occupants present.

The two vehicles had been riddled with bullets upon discovery by other travellers.

According to sources, after the attack on the two vehicles, the travellers were moved into the forest around Iju by their abductors.

While confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the Ondo State Police Command, Funmi Odunlami, stated that the command was unable to ascertain the number of people involved.

She explained that the anti-kidnapping unit swiftly responded to the incident and has been conducting a thorough search within the Iju forest.

Odunlami added that no official reports had been received from the families of the owners of the two vehicles, and there were no reports of missing individuals in the state.

The Ekiti State police Command is yet to react to the incident as at the time of filing in this report.
