The traditional ruler of Auga, Oba Samuel Agunloye who also confirmed the incident explained that his wife was on her way to her hometown to attend a family function when she was kidnapped

According to the monarch, the ugly incident happened between Ise Akoko and Auga saying she was kidnapped along with the driver on their way to her hometown.
