Gunmen Kidnap Chief Accountant of A Medical Facility in Ondo State, South-West Nigeria

Armed men have kidnapped the Chief Accountant of the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Owo in Ondo State, Mr. Kayode Asaju.

Asaju, who was reportedly on his way to Abuja, was kidnapped on Sunday evening on the Lokoja-Abuja Road.

A source at the hospital said he travelled to Abuja for a meeting scheduled for yesterday.
The source added that the suspected kidnappers contacted the victim’s family and demanded N5 million ransom.

Police spokesman Femi Joseph said the incident occurred outside the command’s jurisdiction.
He, however, assured people that it would work with the Kogi State Police Command to ensure that the victim is rescued.
