A day after a prominent traditional ruler in Ondo State, Oba Israel Adeusi, the Olufon of Ifon, was killed by suspected kidnappers, unidentified gunmen on Friday abducted the wife of the Chief of Staff to Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.

Mr. Olugbenga Ale’s wife was abducted in the Owena village, along Akure/Ondo Highway of Ondo State on Thursday evening and whisked into a nearby bush by the gunmen.

The woman was abducted alongside another woman while returning on a business trip.

Ondo state police spokesman ASP Tee-Leo Ikoro, who confirmed the incident, said a detachment of police detectives have been searching the nearby bush in a bid to rescue the victims and apprehend the abductors.
