A resident of the state told Sahara Reporters that Mrs. Ale was on transit when the bandits abducted her.
“The woman was abducted at Owena along Ondo Road. The case has been reported to the security agencies especially the Amotekun and army to comb everywhere and we are expecting a feedback soon.”the source said
An aide to Governor Akeredolu, who asked not to be named, also confirmed the incident, noting that it occurred late on Thursday.
“The governor is aware of the incident already and has also visited the house of the Chief of Staff at Alagbaka with plans to ensure the safe release of the woman.
He could not even present the 2021 budget before the state’s House of Assembly and had to send one of his commissioners to do the presentation on his behalf due to the incident” he said.
