Igboora Monarch’s Wife, Daughter Kidnapped
Olori Funbi Ojo, wife of Oba Olusanjo Ojo, the Baba-Aso of Igboole in Igboora area of Oyo State, was on Monday evening kidnapped alongside her daughter by unknown gunmen.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the monarch’s wife is the matron of Oyo State College of Agriculture and Technology (OYSCATECH) health centre.
The Olori and her daughter were riding in a car driven by her son when their assailants swooped on them.
The monarch’s son, however, escaped, though the car was said to have been riddled with bullets, a source told NAN.
The family was yet to be contacted by the kidnappers as vigilante groups started combing the bushes to rescue the victims.
Mr Olugbenga Fadeyi, police spokesman, confirmed the incident, saying that efforts have been intensified to rescue the victim from their abductors.
