Several motorists and passengers have reportedly been abducted by suspected bandits along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Friday.
It was reported that the incident happened around Dominion University City of Faith, KM 24, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
According to an eyewitness, who spoke with newsmen the number of people kidnapped cannot be ascertained but three private vehicles were involved.
The witness said the vehicles includes; a Jeep, a Toyota Camry Car and Sedan vehicle whose model can’t be ascertained.
He said; “I can confirm some motorists have just been kidnapped near Dominion University, Ibadan. Many vehicles had to turn back but the road is free as I am talking to you.’’
“I saw three vehicles with their doors wide open and not a single person was found inside the three vehicles and there is no trace of where they ran to.’’
“One of the cars smashed it bonnet on the wall while the one behind jammed it from behind but there no sign of accident. We are sure it was a case of kidnap because the vehicles were empty.’’
“At first, we taught it was robbery but if it was not. We should have seen those that were robbed. There was nobody at the scene when my vehicle got there.”
The witness said when they moved away from the scene, they saw some hunters and vigilantes heading towards the place the incident happened.
The Amotekun Corps Commandant in Oyo State, Col. Olayinka Olayanju, when contacted said; “I am not aware of such development. There is no way such a thing would happen and we won’t be informed. Such thing is strange to me. I will find out and get back to you.”
The Police are yet to react to the development.
