Gunmen kidnap Oyo businessman less than 72 hours after the murder of woman and two children
A businessman identified as Alhaji Monsuru Aderoju has been abducted by suspected kidnappers in the Igangan area of Ibarapa, Oyo state.
WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that the incident happened less than 72 hours after the gruesome killing of the CEO of Subawa Oil, Sherifat Adisa and two 9-year-old cousins along Igboora-Idere road in Ibarapa.
This development was confirmed on Tuesday in Ibadan by the convener of an advocacy group called Igangan Development Advocates, Oladokun Oladiran.
The convener said that the businessman was kidnapped from his bedroom by the gun men around 8:pm on Monday, January 4.
“The victim is a popular cassava dealer known as Alhaji Monsuru Aderoju. Monsuru Aderoju was kidnapped by unknown strangers suspected to be the Fulani kidnap gang on Monday evening. He resides at Oke Agbède, Igangan. The business tycoon supplies cassava and he has one wife and two kids,” said Oladiran.
“After he finished his 8pm Muslim prayer, he decided to go home. According to information from a reliable source, two of the kidnappers attended the same prayer session. However, their strange faces only generated some suspicion after the saga unfolded; they were not thought to be threats (initially). They must have trailed him home and carried out their evil act. The state is too bureaucratic about this. There are times you throw away the garb of unnecessary bureaucracy to save lives.” he added.
The killings and kidnapping have forced members of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) to shut their filling stations across Ibarapa.
