According to the allegation, the king slowed his car down at one of the road’s potholes, and gunmen appeared from a nearby bush and began shooting intermittently into the air, causing him to come to a halt.

DSP William Aya, a police spokesman in Kogi, confirmed the incident, saying Adembe was kidnapped at about 5:20 p.m. on the Okene-Eganyi Road.

He explained that the gunmen kidnapped the traditional monarch by taking advantage of potholes on the road.

“His automobile slowed down at one of the road’s potholes; the shooters appeared from a nearby bush and began shooting intermittently into the air, causing him to come to a halt,” he added.

“As the gunmen marched only the traditional ruler into the jungle, the other occupants of the vehicle were spared,” Aya recounted.

He also added that police officers were already searching the surrounding region and the jungle for the victim so that he could be reunited with his family.
