Kidnapped victim regain freedom in Ondo

OndoTHE Ondo State Police Command on Thursday said it has rescued one of five people kidnapped by some hoodlums on Tuesday evening in Amurin, along Akure /Owo road, Ondo State, some 24 hours after their abduction.

The State Police Public Relations Officers (PPRO) Femi Joseph, who disclosed this to newsmen, said the victim, a medical doctor at the Federal Medical Center, Owo, who is also pregnant, regained her freedom from her captives on Thursday morning.

Joseph however, said men of the state police have been on trail of the hoodlums to rescue the other victims.

Five workers, including staff of the state-owned Polytechnic, Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, and FMC Owo, were abducted by some gunmen at Amurin village while returning from Owo to Akure after the close of work on Tuesday evening.

TribuneOnline gathered that four of the victims were health workers from the FMC while a lecturer of RUGIPO was also kidnapped by the hoodlums.

The kidnappers numbering 20, were said to be Fulanis, who dressed in mobile police uniforms, while they stopped vehicles on the road, disguising like policemen at the checkpoint.

A source at the FMC who identified the pregnant doctor as Dr Jumoke Aiyeku, however, did not disclosed the amount of money paid as ransom to secure the release of the female medical doctor.

The source said: “The abducted and released doctor is a Treasurer of the Association of Resident Doctors, FMC, Owo Branch.

“She was released after a ransom was paid, her release was not free, but she is in a stable condition. She was released because of her condition but not without payment of ransom.”

However, Joseph maintained that the woman was released through the effort of the men of the police command, saying no ransom was paid.

He said: “Since the abduction took place, our men have been at work, they didn’t sleep. The was how they freed the victim and no ransom was paid.”

It was also gathered that the kidnappers had contacted the family of the other victims, demanding a sum of N50million as ransom.
