One Shot, 20 Travellers Kidnapped, Along Sagamu-Ijebu Ode Expressway In Ogun | MarvelTvUpdates

Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers launched a brazen attack on the Sagamu-Ijebu-Ode Expressway in Ogun State, abducting 20 travellers .

The attack occurred around 8 pm on Sunday, according to the media.

One of the victims managed to escape, despite being shot in the knee.

It was further gathered that, the injured individual was currently receiving medical treatment at Babcock University Teaching Hospital, Ilisan Remo.

The gunmen reportedly ambushed the travellers between the Sagamu Area Command of the Nigeria Police and Ilisan township.

The Chairman of Ilisan Development Council, Wemmy Osude, confirmed the incident.

He explained “a resident of Ilisan whose name could not be ascertained at the time of filing this report was reportedly shot in the knee and is receiving medical attention at Babcock Teaching Hospital.

“Other victims were taken into the bush. While waiting for additional information, please contact your loved ones who may be plying that road at about this time to be cautious.”

Osude also spoke about his conversation with the Sagamu Area Commander regarding the incident.

He expressed hope that security agents would swiftly respond to rescue the abducted individuals.

“I have spoken to the Sagamu Area Commander about this incident, and hopefully, we trust that all the security agents will go after these criminals and rescue these people,” he said.

This kidnapping follows closely on the heels of another recent tragedy.

Two individuals were abducted, and Professor Yinka Olomojobi of Babcock University was murdered at the Ajadeh Event Centre along Iperu-Sagamu Road, Iperu Remo, in the Ikenne Local Government Area.

Olomojobi was a renowned professor of human rights and gender law.

Attempts to reach the spokesperson for the Ogun State Police Command, SP Omolola Odutola, were unsuccessful, as calls to her line did not connect.
