Suspected kidnappers on Monday kidnapped the Director of Administration, Gbonyin Local Government area of Ekiti State, Mr. David Jejelowo and his driver along Ado-Ekiti/Ijan-Ekiti Road.
This is not less than a week after gunmen had killed an accountant with Emure LG and kidnapped two other top officials of the council along Emure-Ise/Ikere-Ekiti Road.
The kidnapped victims in Emure regained their freedom last Saturday.
The victims in both cases were kidnapped while returning to Ado-Ekiti after work.
It was gathered that Jejelowo was returning to Ado-Ekiti around 7.15pm in his official car when he was abducted on the way.
The driver has been released. We can confirm that to you. We are monitoring the situation and our men are working round the clock to ensure that the man is rescued from the hideout.
The spokesman, who said the Police were working assiduously to tame the marauders, called on members of the public to give useful information that would help to track down the criminals.
