Gunmen suspected to be herdsmen have kidnapped a Chinese expatriate at Igbemo-Ekiti in the Irelodun/ Ifelodun area of Ekiti State.
The expatriate identified as one of the experts supervising the construction of Ilupeju-Ire-Igbemo-Ijan road was waylaid at Igbemo-Ekiti while driving in a Hilux Van and whisked away to an unknown destination by arm-wielding attackers.
This is the following a kidnapping that occurred three months in Iyin-Ekiti when two Chinese handling the construction of the new Ado-Iyin road were kidnapped.
The Police Public Relations Officers, Ekiti Command, ASP Sunday Abutu, who confirmed the incident said the operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) have launched a manhunt for the kidnappers.
“Our RRS men swung into action immediately the news was broken. They are combing all the surrounding bushes and we are sure that the abductee will be released soon.”
