Two suspected kidnappers stormed the home of the Otun Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Lekan Balogun, and abducted his five-year-old twins, a boy and a girl.
The kidnappers stormed the home of the monarch last night and whisked away the children.
Confirming the incident, the state police spokesman, Adekunle Ajisebutu, said:
“We have launched a manhunt for the kidnappers. We will rescue the children. We received a report that two of the traditional ruler’s children were kidnapped in Akobo. The command is doing everything to rescue the children unhurt. We are aware of the incident. We hope to rescue the children as soon as possible.” Police Commissioner Abiodun Odude has ordered the Anti Kidnapping Squad to rescue the children.”
The kidnappers have reportedly reached out to the monarch demanding N100 million ransom.
