The traditional ruler of Iyani-Akoko, in Akoko North West Local Government Area of Ondo State, the Oniyani of Iyani Akoko, Oba Joel Sunday Daodu, has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

He was kidnapped along Ose Oba Akoko axis of Ikare-Owo road, the same spot where the former Regent of Akungba-Akoko was kidnapped two years ago.

A community leader in Akoko area, explained that many prominent people especially traditional rulers had narrowly escaped kidnapping on the road several times.

Confirming the incident, the Public Relations Officer of the Ondo State Police Command, Femi Joseph, told Channels Television that men of the command were busy on the trail of the hoodlums. He equally assured that the monarch would soon be rescued and the abductors arrested.

He urged people of the community and the entire state not to panic stating that the police is on top of the situation and that their lives and property are adequately protected.

A fellow traditional ruler in the area, the Owa of Ogbagi-Akoko, Oba Victor Adetona, who went with the police to the scene also confirmed the incident.

Meanwhile, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, Segun Ajiboye, expressed shock at the abduction of the monarch, describing it as a very unfortunate incident. (Channels TV)
