Former College Provost in Ogun Reportedly Abducted by Suspected Gunmen

Gunmen Suspected to Have Kidnapped Former College Provost, Wife, and Driver

A former Provost of the Federal College of Education, Dr Ayodele Adetayo Ajayi, and his wife have been kidnapped by armed men believed to be kidnappers. The incident occurred on Tuesday evening at Ikija village, Olodo axis of the Abeokuta-Ibadan road in Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun State.

  1. The Abduction

According to an anonymous resident of the area, the gunmen emerged from the bushes and attacked Ajayi and other motorists along the road. They blocked the road, shot indiscriminately into the air, and whisked the victims away. While Ajayi’s wife was later released by the abductors, he and his driver remain captive.

  1. Increasing Abduction Cases

The same source revealed that the Olodo axis of the Abeokuta-Ibadan road has recently witnessed an alarming increase in kidnapping cases. Just the day before, the gunmen abducted five people, but two of them were eventually released. Last month, three people were killed in the area, including a prominent businessman who owned a large farm along the same route.

  1. Appeal for Help

The resident pleaded for immediate intervention from the government and security agencies, stating that the situation was becoming unbearable. The Olu of Odeda, Oba David Olorunisola, narrowly escaped an attempted kidnapping this week, but his driver was shot and is currently receiving treatment at a nearby medical facility.

  1. Efforts to Track Down the Abductors

The police spokesperson, Omolola Odutola, confirmed that the police and other security operatives were already on the case. The authorities have recovered Ajayi’s vehicle, which was later abandoned by the abductors. The hunt for the kidnappers is underway.
