Chief Femi Mokikan, the president of the Okun Development Association (ODA), who confirmed the incident, said the kidnappers approached Mrs. Kola-family Ojo’s but have yet to make demands.

“The persons they (kidnappers) called was a family uncle to the woman, telling him they have Mrs. Kola-Ojo in their custody. But before they could state their ransom, the man’s phone experienced flat battery. We are hoping that they will call back today,” Chief Mokikan said.

“Around 10:30 a.m. I got the information about the Kidnapped saga and we began screaming for assistance to those who matter, including the Governor’s Senior Security Adviser,” he added.

He said ODA works around the clock in partnership with Ijumu Local Government officials to ensure their safe and fast publication.
