Abductors of the traditional ruler of Ajowa Akoko, the Oloso of Oso-Ajowa Akoko, Oba Clement Jimoh Olukotun, have demanded N100 million as ransom.

The information available indicates that the kidnappers called the family members at about 0600hrs on Saturday, demanding N100 million to secure the release of the traditional ruler after 72 hours of waiting.

The family member appealed to Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) and spirited Nigerians to help in bailing the traditional ruler from his captors, to avert untoward actions from the gunmen.

Combined forces of the police and local hunters have begun intensive combing of the sprawling forest from Ajowa to Kogi borders to ensure that they secure the traditional ruler’s freedom.

Recall that Oba Olukotun was on Thursday evening abducted and has since been held hostage by kidnappers, who besieged his residence in the town and whisked him away.

The armed men who gained entry into the palace shot sporadically and destroyed the main door before dragging the monarch out and taking him away.
