The son of former health minister, Isaac Adewole has been kidnapped.
Dayo Adewole was abducted from his farm in Iroko, near Fiditi in Afijio local government area of Oyo state around 6pm on Tuesday.
The community had raised a team of local hunters who were said to have gone in search of Dayo but could not rescue him.
“The villagers were alerted by the staff who survived the ordeal. Local hunters were mobilised by the Oniroko of Iroko,” a source was quoted to have said.
“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 radio after Oniroko had raised the alarm on air.”
The abductors have reportedly not contacted the family of the victim on their motive.
The ex-minister, who was reportedly abroad as of the time of the incident, is said to be on his way back to the country because of the abduction.
