Ondo police begin manhunt for father, son’s abductors

52

The Ondo State Police Command has begun a manhunt for the gunmen who reportedly abducted a man, Maliki Onose and his son Jethro, along the Benin -Owo Road in the Ose Local Government Area of the state on Monday.

Though details of the incident were sketchy as of the time of filing this report, PUNCH Metro gathered that the victims were travelling along the road when the gunmen waylaid them and dragged them into the bush.

The kidnapped son is said to be a student of the Nigerian Navy Secondary School, Imeri in the council area.

A source from the area who spoke with our correspondent on the condition of anonymity, because he was not authorised to do so, said, “The man (Maliki ) was travelling to Imeri to drop his son who was to resume at the Nigerian Navy Secondary School, Imeri after the three-week Easter holiday when the bandits waylaid them and whisked them away to an unknown destination.”

In her reaction, the Police Public Relations Officer of the state command, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, who confirmed the incident, said efforts were ongoing to rescue the victims unhurt.

The PPRO said, “We are currently working with the Nigerian Navy to ensure that the victims are rescued from the den of the kidnappers and get the perpetrators arrested.”
