Police And Hunters Rescue 14 Kidnapped Passengers In Osun

14 Ilesha-bound travellers abducted by kidnappers have been rescued by men of the Osun state police command in collaboration with hunters.

The passengers were abducted on Sunday, August 21, by gunmen posing as passengers.

One of the passengers told The Nation;

“We moved after the bus was full but on getting to a place, the men told the driver to park for them to urinate. They brought out guns and forced everybody inside the bush.”

Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, Yemisi Opalola, said;

“We rescued the passengers from kidnappers with the help of hunters. The passengers were forced into the bush at the boundary of Osogbo/Ilesha but were found at Brewery area inside Ilesha.”
