Four Students of Kogi State Polytechnic haven been abducted by suspected kidnappers along the Akunnu-Ajowa Road in Akoko area of Ondo state.
The students, said to be returning home for the yuletide were waylaid at Ago jinadu Axis, an area noted for criminal activities, especially kidnapping.
The development is said to have thrown the Ajowa community into a pensive mood just as parents of the victims are saddened by the ugly occurrence.
Meanwhile, the police have arrested the mechanic of a popular cream dealer in Ikare Akoko, Late Augustine Okoye who died in kidnappers’ den last week.
The late Okoye was allegedly tortured to death by his abductors despite collecting ransome from the family.
Wife of the deceased, Mrs Bolaji Okoye had told the police that her husband’s mechanic simply called Segun was sighted in the Bush while they were being held hostage.
Confirming the two incidents, Ikare area commander of Police, ACP Muri Agboola said his men had been combing forests along the Akunnu-Ajowa Akoko Road to rescue the abducted students while the mechanic to the late Okoye had been moved to Police Headquarters in Akure for further interrogations.
