Unknown Gunmen Abduct Lagos PDP Chairman On Ibadan Expressway

UNKNOWN Gunmen have abducted the chairman of the Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, Philip Aivoji, and some other party chieftains.

They were said to have been abducted at the Ogere area of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Philip was said to have been kidnapped alongside other party members who were with him while returning from party’s Stakeholders’ Zonal Caucus Meeting held in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State.

Sources who craved anonymity revealed to our correspondent that the abductors are demanding for N200 million for the release of the party leaders.

The state publicity secretary of the party, Hon. Hakeem Amode, confirmed the abduction.

He called on security agencies and government authorities at all levels to intervene promptly and secure his release.

Amode stated that the chairman was returning from a stakeholders’ meeting in Oyo State convened by Governors Seyi Makinde and Ademola Adeleke.

He said, “It is disheartening that kidnapping has become a prevalent issue in our country, and the government’s inability to address this menace is deeply concerning.

“The abduction of Aivoji underscores the pressing need for decisive actions from the government and stakeholders to eradicate this menace.

“Aivoji’s abduction was a violent incident, and his current whereabouts or any communication from the abductors remain unknown.

“We implore the governments of Oyo, Ogun, and Lagos States, alongside security agencies, to expedite efforts and secure his safe return to his family and well-wishers. We firmly believe that, with increased efforts from security agencies, Aivoji can be rescued from these criminals, and we call on the public to support initiatives aimed at ending this threat to innocent lives.”
