In the Asa local government of Kwara State, four people—including a vigilante—have been kidnapped by suspected gunmen.
It was learned that the unfortunate event took place on Tuesday night in Kwara State’s Aboto, Asa local government area.
According to Vanguard, the kidnappers ambushed a group of guests as they were leaving a naming ceremony.
Saka Ibrahim, the head of the vigilante in Kwara State, verified the occurrence on Thursday.
According to him, “A local who had a naming ceremony for his child was taking some guests home after the programme when his car was ambushed.
“Three male guests and one of our vigilante officials who tried to rescue them were Kidnapped in the process. He was not wearing a uniform and did not bear any arm.
“Our men have been searching the bush for their whereabouts since then but no progress yet”.
Saka expressed deep concern that the situation has been “really troubling because the abductors are yet to contact any of the victim’s family for ransom”.
