Three persons traveling in a Toyota Corolla car and Mitsubishi Pick up Van coming for a wedding at Ikare Akoko have been reportedly kidnapped by suspected gunmen along Auga-Ikare road in Ondo state.
The men were abducted on the same spot where Olori Agunloye, the wife of the Alauga of Auga and her driver were kidnapped last year between Auga and Ise Akoko.
A woman who is a wife to one of the victims was left with her two children to report the case for possible negotiation on ransom.
The police in Ikare in conjunction with vigilante group had swung into action by combing the bush to rescue the victims and arrest the criminals.
He said for kidnapping and other criminalities to be reduced, there should be Army formation with police outpost in the area.
He disclosed that Ipele-Isua-Auga Akunu-kabba federal highway needed to be rehabilitated for free flow of vehicles.
As at the press time, no family had been contacted for negotiations.
