Dayo Adewole, son of former Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, has been abducted by some unknown gunmen. Dayo was kidnapped Tuesday evening.

The military, the police, security agents and local hunters were already on the trail of the kidnappers as at press time.

Following the incident, the former minister has been forced to cut short his trip abroad. The abductors were yet to contact the family on their motive and the condition of their victim.

Dayo Adewole was said to have been waylaid at gunpoint on his farm in Iroko, near Fiditi in Afijio Local Government Area of Oyo State at about 6pm.

Although there were some staff with Dayo, the abductors went for him as a prime target.

 

It was gathered that the kidnappers later took Dayo away to an unknown destination.

A source said, ”The villagers were alerted by the staff who survived the ordeal. Local hunters were mobilised by the Oniroko of Iroko."
