Kidnappers Invade Eruwa Oyo State, Abduct Another Businesswoman

Some gunmen suspected to be kidnappers yesterday evening abducted a woman identified as Foluke in Eruwa, the headquarters of Ibarapa East Local Government Area of Oyo state.

It was gathered on Tuesday that Foluke and three of her colleagues who were coming from Temidire market were accosted by the gunmen along the old Ibadan-Eruwa Road around 6.30pm on Monday.

The abduction of Foluke who is a provision seller at Owode in Aborerin area of Eruwa according to a source is coming less than two weeks after the abduction of a canteen owner, Mrs. Folakemi Olufunmilayo in Igbo-Ora, town in the same local government area.

A native of Eruwa who spoke in confidence on Tuesday informed that the gunmen numbering about four accosted Foluke who drove the car and the three other passengers, seized their mobile phones, parked the car along the road and whisked Foluke away.

He said that the abductors after collecting the phones released the three passengers and whisked the victim away.

He, however, said he was not aware if the family of the victim has been contacted by the abductors.

The source said;

“I can tell you that another woman, Foluke has been kidnapped in Eruwa on Monday. Foluke and three other people were coming from Temidire market when she was abducted around 6.30pm. The market is in Eruwa. There are four people in the car. She was the one that drove the car.

“Out of the four people, she is the only one that they kidnapped because she was the one that drove the car. They seized their phones so that they will not contact anybody until they get to the town. They parked her car and took her away.

“I know her, she sells provision at Owode in Aborerin area of the town. The case has been reported at Eruwa Divisional Headquarters. I learnt that the vigilante group and the hunters have been hunting for them. I can’t say that this is the kind of people that kidnapped her. And I don’t know if they have demanded ransom from the family”.

Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), in the state, Mr. Olugbenga Fadeyi who confirmed the abduction, told newsmen that men of the state police command have been hunting for the abductors to ensure the release of the victim.

Fadeyi said, “Yes, it is true. It was a case of abduction.

“The command is working to get full detail of the incident. The command is seriously working hard to get the abductors. The command is aware of the incident and working hard to ensure release of the victim. “

  1. Gone are the days when Nigeria was Nigeria. When criminality has no abode in Nigeria. It all started when we started to run our own government. A decade after British left our continent, we couldn’t figure the way out since then. This kidnapping crime stated during the administration of Olusegun Obasanjo and since then it’s been a business as usual.

    The crime was at its peak when Obasanjo used some of these miscreants to Assassinate Bola Ige. Uptill today, killer of Bola Ige are still roaming the street. This is an absurd to the entire nation.

    Most of these touts took advantage of that incidence and turned kidnapping into business. I’m not saying there is no Fulani kidnappers but we have some bastards collaborators from the south who are lending help to these Fulanis. This woman abducted was targeted. If the kidnappers were Fulanis they would have kidnapped all of them. The law enforcement needs to interrogate the other three ladies since no one can be trusted in this Country again. This is an insider job.

  2. Security is what this pmb is supposed to tackle not this ruga nonsense….. I pray she returned alive.
