Some gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted no fewer than nine people in Ogbomoso area of Oyo State.
Pressmen gathered on Sunday that the gunmen kidnapped the nine people in a hotel Saturday evening.
They were abducted around 10.pm at Agbo Hotel, located at Lagbedu area.
We gathered from a native of Ogbomoso that among the nine people kidnapped included Mr Oyedokun Oyeniyi who is the owner of the Hotel and his wife, Busayo Oyedokun.
Seven other people who are members of Oyedokun’s family were also kidnapped.
It was known that the hotelier was preparing for his father’s burial which has been fixed for Friday.
The gunmen stormed the hotel premises pretending to be lodgers.
The whereabouts of the victims has not been ascertained as of the time of filing this report on Monday.
However, efforts made by the pressmen to get the reaction of the Spokesman of the State Police Command, Mr. Adewale Osifeso, proved abortive.
Calls put through his mobile phone were not successful, just as text messages sent to him have not been replied as of the time of filing this report on Monday.
We recalls that Oyo State has been witnessing cases of kidnapping by gunmen in the last few months.
The abduction of the nine people in Ogbomoso is coming three days after the abduction of twenty-five people in Ibarapa geo-political zone of the State.
