Yet-to-be-identified gunmen have kidnapped Dayo Adewole, son of the immediate past Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole.
The kidnapping took place on Tuesday.
The abductors have yet to contact the family of the victim.
Eyewitnesses said he was ambushed at gunpoint on his farm in Iroko, near Fiditi in Afijio Local Government Area of Oyo State about 6 pm.
He was then whisked away to an unknown destination.
A local who spoke to The Nation said, “The villagers were alerted by the staff who survived the ordeal. Local hunters were mobilized by the Oniroko of Iroko.
“The hunters were said to have located the car of the abductors along the road to Iware village near Iroko.
“But they are yet to locate Dayo’s whereabouts. It was suspected that the kidnappers might have changed their vehicle following persistent announcement on the radio after Oniroko had raised the alarm on air.”
