A woman identified as Mrs. Opeyemi Adeniran and her daughter, Oyinkansola, have been kidnapped at their residence, in the Odo-ona Elewe, area of Ibadan.
The incident happened as the Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Katsina, inaugurated the command’s Anti-kidnapping Squad, which is headed by Usman Dimka, at the state command, Eleyele, on Saturday [May 23].
A Save Our Soul message sent by concerned friends and relatives of the family on the social media claimed that Mrs. Adeniran and her daughter were kidnapped about 8pm on Friday and driven away in an ash coloured Volkswagen Golf 3 car with number plate FKJ 238 BD.
Mrs. Adeniran’s brother, who identified himself as Mr. Tajudeen Banjo, told PUNCH that the case had been reported to the police and that the family was traumatised by the incident.
“She was kidnapped with her daughter and taken away on Friday night. Her husband is out of the country and we have reported to the police. We beg the police and the public to help us in time of this trial. My sister is an easy-going individual,” he said.
Efforts by PUNCH to get the reaction of the police were futile.
