Unknown Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have reportedly attacked Abaa, a community near the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, and abducted two persons.
The Punch Metro revealed in a report that the gunmen stormed the community which is located in the Surulere Local Government Area of Oyo State on Thursday night and whisked away their victims, a hotelier, and his staff.
According to the report, some LAUTECH workers as well as students are said to be living in the community which is located off the Ogbomoso-Ilorin Expressway.
A resident of the community, who spoke on condition of anonymity to the Punch correspondent said that the hotelier, his worker, and one other person were kidnapped by the gunmen he claimed are Fulani hoodlums.
The source said the community head, Chief John Adepoju, immediately sent messages to residents to remain vigilant and stay indoors after the incident. The source said Adepoju had called a meeting of residents of the community where they would discuss the next step to take.
The source said, “The owner of the hotel travelled and returned yesterday and the incident happened not long after his return.
“The kidnappers should be about 10 from what those who were present at the scene told us and they fired several shots to scare people away and whisked their victims away.
“This problem which we were hearing of from afar has come to this area and it is unfortunate that it has become a frequent occurrence here now.”
