Barely 72 hours after the Alao-Akala family welcomed a set of twins born by Olamiju Alao-Akala, the family has been thrown into turmoil as gunmen attacked the farm of the late former Governor and kidnapped the Farm Supervisor.
The incident was said to have occurred at about 7:00 p.m. on Saturday at the farm located in Jabata, Surulere local government area of the State.
The kidnappers, suspected to be Fulani herdsmen, are said to have demanded a ransom of ₦100m.
A close family source in a conversation with newsmen said, “Yes, they are Fulani herdsmen quite alright but they speak a smattering of Yoruba.
“The victim was kidnapped on the farm amid a staccato of gunshots. We have been trying to negotiate with them even though the police had been informed”.
According to BCOS correspondent, Aderemi Akanmu, a meeting was held on Monday by some stakeholders to ensure the return of the victim, Christopher Bakare, who is a native of Gbongan in Osun state and was employed on the farm about four years ago.
