No fewer than five people were abducted by some hoodlums the on Akure/Owo Expressway at Amurin village in Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State.

The incident which occured on Tuesday evening was said to have caused panic for the travellers and motorists who plied the expressway.

It was gathered that the hoodlums operated for several minutes as they barricaded the expressway and stopped the vehicle conveying the victims, who were coming from Owo town.

A source disclosed that most of the victims were members of staff of the Federal Medical Centre and the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic both in Owo.

An FMC medical doctor told our correspondent on the condition of anonymity that the victims included, a doctor and two nurses from the FMC while lecturers of the polytechnic were also abducted by the hoodlums.

He said, “The victims were medical staff of the FMC. They were returning to Akure after the close of work on Tuesday evening. One of them is a pregnant doctor and two nurses of the FMC. Some lecturers of the polytechnic were also kidnapped.

“This is a very pathetic happening in this country. Last week some travellers too were kidnapped at Akoko area. They were later released after all of them paid a ransom.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident but said two people were kidnapped by the hoodlums. He, however, did not disclose the identity of the victims.

He said, “Only two people were abducted. The hoodlums operated on the expressway like armed robbers but immediately they heard that our men were approaching them, they just fled with the two victims.

“While investigation had commenced, our men had already been deployed in the area to free the victims and arrest the hoodlums. ”

Meanwhile, it was gathered that the hoodlums had not contacted the families of the victims for a ransom as of the time of filing this report.

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
