Sources very close to the kidnap victims, Musibau Adepoju, and his driver, whose name could not be ascertained, disclosed that the duo was abducted on Friday evening.
The victim, who usually operates within gold mining communities around Ilesa, is based in Osogbo alongside his family members and was said to be on his way home before he was waylaid and kidnapped.
It was reported that the kidnappers have contacted the family of Adepoju and had demanded the sum of N100 million.
“It was on Saturday morning that we got a call from one of the kidnappers who asked us to bring the N100 million as ransom. We became more worried because we don’t have that money. We have been praying ever since for his unconditional release,” a source said.
The incident was said to have been reported at the state police command.
Our correspondent was unable to reach the Public Relations Officer of the Police in the state, Mrs Yemisi Opalolola as her line was unreachable as at the time of filing this report.
