Unknown gunmen have abducted a Director of Administration with the Ekiti State Local Government Service Commission, Mr. David Jejelowo and his driver.
Jejelowo, who is the Director of Administration in Gbonyin local government area, was kidnapped while on his way from Ode Ekiti, along Ado-Ijan road.
Recall that few days ago, an accountant with Emure local government, Mr Abayomi Ajayi, was murdered and two other officers of the Emure local government were abducted along Ise-Ikere road.
Jejelowo was said to be returning to Ado-Ekiti when he was kidnapped.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Ekiti Command, Mr. Caleb Ikechukwu, confirmed the incident, saying the driver had been released.
“We confirmed the kidnap incident yesterday(Monday). It happened along Ado-Ijan road and it involved the Director of Administration of Gbonyin local government and his driver.
“But the driver has been released , we can confirm that to you. We are monitoring the situation and our men are working round the clock to ensure that the man is rescued from the hideout.
“The driver has been giving us useful information that we are going to work on to facilitate the release,” he said.
Ikechukwu added that the command is mapping out strategy to tame the marauding kidnappers, who were fond of abducting prominent people with the intention to collect ransom from them.
The spokesman called on the members of the public to give useful and veracious information that would help in tracking down “these evil doers.”
