The gunmen who kidnapped a woman and her three children along Ajilete, Agunjin district of Ifelodun Local Government Area of the Kwara State, have demanded the payment of N100 million as a ransom before their release from captivity.
The yet-to-be-identified victims were said to have gone missing after the kidnappers reportedly stormed the community around 8:00 pm, shooting sporadically before they were abducted from their residence and marched them into the forest.
The abductors were said to have contacted the family of the victim and demanded for the sum of N100 million as ransom.
Reacting to the development on Tuesday, the Chairman of the Transportation Implementation Committee, Jide Asonibare, said the committee had yet to make any progress on the matter.
“We have already informed the police and army both in Kwara and neighbouring Kogi states. Fifteen of our vigilante men are still combing the bushes but there is no headway yet.
“The kidnappers have contacted the family demanding for N100 million ransom,” he said
Contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Ajayi Okasanmi, did not respond to calls made to his phone line on Tuesday.
Okasanmi had yet to respond to a text message sent to him.
