About seven gunmen struck on Wednesday at Orin Ekiti in the Ido/Osi Council Area of Ekiti State and abducted a retired top civil servant identified as Bamisaye, who was working in his farm.

Sources said the farm where the incident occurred was located between Ero Dam and the Ekiti State farm settlement at Orin Ekiti.

A source said that the development had caused tension and panic in the town, saying residents were worried about their safety.

He said, “The seven gunmen had earlier attacked one man identified as Ojo within the vicinity of the farm where Bamisaye was kidnapped.

“Ojo was asked about the whereabouts of the white men working at the farm settlement, but he replied that he didn’t know where they were.

“They ordered him to lie face down. They ransacked his car that was parked nearby and took away the N4,500 they found inside the vehicle. They fired a shot and terrified the environment before they later found Bamisaye and whisked him away,”the source said.

The Corps Commandant, Ekiti State Amotekun Corps, said that operatives of the corps and as well men of the security agencies in the state had started working on the development immediately they received the information.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Ekiti State Command, Sunday Abutu, did not respond to his call, when called for confirmation.
