  • It would be recalled that the former Regent of Akungba Akoko, Princess Toyin Omosowon, was kidnapped on the same route in 2015.

    The police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident but yet to give the full details at the time of this report.

    He however said the police was on the move to rescue the traditional ruler.

    The PPRO said, “We learnt that the Oba was kidnapped and our men are already on the trail of the abductors while investigation is also ongoing.”

    On the issue of ransom, Joseph said he was not aware whether the kidnappers demanded for ransom or not.

    “On our part, we will not encourage payment of ransom; but we will ensure that the victim is rescued alive, hale and hearty.”

    In his reaction to the incident, a fellow traditional ruler, the Owa of Ogbagi Akoko, Oba Victor Adetona, condemned the abduction of his colleague.

    He called on the state government to provide adequate security for traditional rulers in the state.

  • Akeredolu hails release of kidnapped monarch

    Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, of Ondo State has congratulated Oba Joel Daodu, the Oniyani of Iyani-Akoko in Akoko North West Local Government Area of the state, on his safe return home, following his release by his abductors.

    Akeredolu, who hailed the security agencies in the state for their efforts in ensuring the release of the monarch, said his administration was determined to make the state unsafe for criminally-minded people.

    Akeredolu made this known on Tuesday in a press statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Segun Ajiboye.

    The governor assured the people of the state of his administration’s commitment to their safety.

    He said all relevant security agencies had been put on red alert to prevent other criminal activities in the state.

    Oba Daodu was kidnapped on Saturday along Owo/Ikare Road by some armed men who later demanded N5 million ransom for his release.
