Killer herdsmen kidnap travelers in Osun  

Gunmen believed to be killer herdsmen have kidnapped some travelers on the Osogbo/Ibokun Road in Osun State, killing one in the process.

According to a villager, gunshots rented the air, and vehicles plying the road were making U-turn. Also, the Field Commander of Osun State Amotekun Corps, Comrade Amitolu Shittu, confirmed the abduction.

“One person was killed by the gunmen while they abducted an unknown number of travelers. We saw spent shells of AK-47 bullets used at the scene. We are still combing the forest to rescue those that were kidnapped,” he said.

A Chinese expatriate was also abducted by suspected herdsmen at Igbemo-Ekiti in the Irelodun/ Ifelodun area of Ekiti State on Tuesday. He is one of the supervisors of the Ilupeju-Ire-Igbemo-Ijan Road construction.

The latest kidnapping happened three months after two Chinese were abducted in Iyin-Ekiti. Police spokesman Sunday Abutu said there was a manhunt for the assailants.
