A cleric and his son have been abducted by gunmen at Oko-Olowo area of Ilorin, Kwara capital.

Ajayi Okasanmi, police spokesman in Kwara, said the incident happened on Saturday.

Okasanmi said two suspects have been arrested in connection to the crime.

“Police are already investigating the matter. Efforts are also at an advanced stage to rescue the victims,” he said.


“Meanwhile, two suspects have already been arrested.”

The gunmen reportedly broke into the cleric’s home after removing the burglar-proof in the window and abducted three victims.

One of the victims was said to have made an attempt to escape but he was shot.


The kidnappers reportedly left the victim, thinking he was dead.

He was later taken to a hospital for treatment.

The cleric’s father said the kidnappers have already contacted the family to demand a ransom of N100 million for the two that were abducted.

“The kidnappers have contacted us and they are asking for N100 million ransom. We have begged them to accept N10 million, which we do not even have,” he said.


“I am appealing to the state government and men of goodwill to assist us in getting my son and grandson out of the den of the kidnappers.”
