Unknown gunmen have abducted two Chinese from their farm in Oba town in Obafemi-Owode Local Government a few hours before the state governor, Dapo Abiodun, inaugurated the state’s wing of the South-West Joint Security Outfit known as Amotekun.

The governor, who inaugurated Amotekun on Wednesday in Abeokuta, disclosed that the Chinese have become victims of kidnapping.

The PUNCH gathered that the Chinese nationals working with a fishery and poultry company in the state were whisked away from the farm on Tuesday when the abductors attacked the place at noon and took them to an unknown location.

The Police Public Relations Officer of the Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.

Oyeyemi said security operatives are working to locate the abductees and rescue them.

“We are on it, we are working to locate and rescue the victims,” he said.

Abimbola added that the abductors accessed the farm in Oba community through Odo Ogun (River Ogun) and escaped with the captives through the same water.

About a dozen of gunmen invaded the ancient Egba town of Oba-Ile around 3: 01 p.m yesterday and started shooting sporadically into the air, before abducting the two Chinese.

A source in the community said that male and female Chinese nationals were the victims of the abduction.

The governor while complaining over the spate of kidnapping said, “There has been a spate of incidents of kidnapping in the State in the last one week or so with Nigerians and Chinese Nationals as victims.

“Through combined efforts of our security agencies working with locals, some of the victims have been rescued whilst some are still being held by the kidnappers.

“I want to assure you all that no effort will be spared to rescue safely the remaining victims. In the same vein, a number of initiatives are being put together to stem this ugly tide of kidnapping and indeed all other forms of criminality in the State.”
