Kidnappers demand N22m as twins, other abducted in Ekiti

Three persons were said to have been abducted in the last couple of days along Aramoko-Erio-Efon road in Ekiti State.
The route extended to Osun border had become a beehive for criminals in recent time, where there had been reported cases of kidnapping, robbery and killings.
Among the abductees are Ibadan based twins; Kehinde and Taiwo Olowoafara, who were kidnapped by suspected herders at Aramoko Ekiti on Sunday.Another victim and General Secretary of Christ’s School Alumni Association, Ado Ekiti, Mr. Ayo Oladele, was reportedly abducted on Saturday.
The policemen, families and friends of the victims are yet to know their locations while efforts were being intensified to ascertain where they were kept.
The abductors, according to a family source, were requesting a sum of N6 million each from the twins, totalling N12 million ransom to regain their freedom.According to Oladele’s family, the kidnappers are demanding a sum of N10 million for him to be let off the hook.
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Ekiti Command, Mr Caleb Ikechukwu, said the incidents have been reported to the police.
Ikechukwu added that every resource was being deployed by the police to ensure that those that were held hostage are set freed.When asked whether they are working in tandem with the victims’ families, the PPRO said: “That is not our concern. Even if the families fail to tell us, we must do our work since the police were aware”, he added.
When the activities of these kidnappers were becoming uncontrollable, soldiers were enlisted last year to comb the expansive forest between Efon and Iwaraja being used as a hideout.
