In Ondo: Gunmen abduct octogenarian

Gunmen have abducted an 82-year-old woman, Mrs Alice Fadeni, from the Okeriota area of Ode Aye in the Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State.
The victim, said to be the mother of a Lagos-based businessman, Mr Sehinde Fadeni, was abducted on Tuesday and whisked to an unknown destination.

It was gathered that the gunmen stormed the residence of the victim and took her away.

A source told our correspondent that the kidnappers had not contacted the family for ransom.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, CSP Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident and said investigation had commenced.

“We are aware of the abduction of the old woman, but we have started investigation into it and we are already on the trail of the bandits,” he stated.

Condemning the incident, the senator representing Ondo South Senatorial District, Nicholas Tofowomo, described the abduction of the octogenarian as evil.

His reaction was contained in a statement issued by the media aide to the senator, Mr Olumide Akinrinola, on Wednesday.

Tofowomo urged security agencies in the state to move into action and secure the unconditional release of the victim and bringing the perpetrators to justice. Punch
