Adinlewa was said to have been kidnapped at the weekend between Akure-Ikere road while going to visit his family at Ikere in Ekiti state.

Meanwhile, the kidnappers have contacted his wife but didn’t demand for a ransom.

In  a telephone conversation with the abductors, Adinlewa was heard telling the wife that they are in the bush and that they had trekked for hours without eating and drinking.

He added that his legs were already burnt due to the heat from the long walk and that his phone would soon be taken from him.

The wife could be heard in the audio asking for their location, until a man interrupted her in pidgin, saying “you dey hear me so” before the call ended.

When contacted, the elder brother of Mr Mayowa Adinlewa, Toyin confirmed that his brother was kidnapped and that N10million has been demanded as ransom.

The head of information and protocol unit of AAUA, Mr Victor Akinpelumi said the incident was still sketchy as at the time of this report.
