A top official of the Odogbolu Local Government, Mrs Bola Oshin, 53, has been declared missing after she was abducted on Thursday by unknown assailants in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun.
Oshin, the Director of Information, Odogbolu Local Government, was allegedly kidnapped around 6pm at Molipa area, Ijebu-Ode alongside her teenage daughter in her black Kia Sorento jeep, registration number: Ogun JGB 456 AA.
A close aide, who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday on condition of anonymity said the kidnappers were yet to make contact with the family on her whereabouts or for ransom.
Confirming the incident, the husband of the abducted, Dr Tokunbo Oshin, said he was left distraught not knowing the condition his wife and daughter were.
Mrs Oshin’s jeep was said to have been recovered after it was found abandoned at Idowa area in Ijebu-Ode on the same day.
The source revealed that the police had since been informed about the incident and were investigating the case already to determine the Oshins’ whereabouts.
Efforts by NAN as at press time to speak to the Ogun Police spokesperson, Mr Muyiwa Adejobi proved abortive as he didn’t pick calls made to his phone.
