Driver of Justice Nasiru Ajanah, the chief judge of Kogi State, Mallam Hassan Haruna, and his niece who is also a legal practitioner in state, Rabi Ozavize Ovosi, have been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.
Their abduction is coming days after an Osun State Permanent Secretary in the Bureau of General Services, Mrs. Olufunke Oluwakemi Kolawole, was kidnapped and murdered on her way to Abuja along Okene-Lokoja-Abuja road in the state.
Ovosi was kidnapped at the weekend on her way to Okene from Lokoja at Itape junction in Okehi local council of Kogi State.
The gunmen forced the vehicle to stop as they ordered the woman and the driver to alight from the car after which they were whisked into the nearby forest in the mountain.
A cousin of the victim, Abdullateef Ovosi, Saturday said the kidnappers called the family at the wee hours of Sunday demanding for ransom. “As we speak, their lines are no more reachable for us to know what amount they are demanding,” he said.
