Gunmen abduct Fulani man, demand N7m in Oyo
Some gunmen have kidnapped a Fulani man, Amodu Shehu, at Abule Oba community in the Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo state.
Shehu’s father, simply identified as Alhaji Amodu, said his son was kidnapped around 7pm on Friday while coming home from his farm.
He said, “The gunmen started shooting sporadically in our village and we were all scared. In the process, they kidnapped Shehu and took him away. We later reported to the police at Ayete division, as well as to Chief Odomofin in the town.
“The kidnappers called yesterday (Saturday) and demanded N10m ransom before they can release my son. When they called back in the evening, it was reduced to N7m”.
