Gunmen reportedly attacked him when he was returning to his home in Aramoko Ekiti
Suspected gunmen have abducted a People Democractic People (PDP) chieftain in Ekiti state. The Financial Secretary of PDP , Kayode Oni was abducted along the Efon Alaaye-Erio-Ekiti federal highway. He was reportedly returning from returning home in Aramoko Ekiti, headquarters of Ekiti West Local Government Area in company of his daughter and grandson. The Public Secretary of the Party, Jackson Adebayo confirmed Oni’s attack. He said the kidnappers have reached to Oni’s family and they requested 30 Million Naira ransom.
Adebayo said, “He went to conduct our local government congress in Efon Alaaye and he was abducted while returning to Aramoko. The family had been contacted, but they told the abductors that even the entire family can’t raise N1 million and they were requesting for a staggering sum of N30 million to secure his freedom. The family told us reliably that it had made a formal complaint at the police station in Efon about the situation and they promised to take action. Our party is not resting as well. We are making contacts to ensure that his safety is guaranteed in the kidnappers’ den.”
