About 20 travellers have been reportedly kidnapped along the Sagamu-Ijebu-Ode Expressway by gunmen who attacked the commercial bus they boarded on Sunday, June 30, at about 9. pm

The gunmen were said to have ambushed the travellers between Sagamu Area Command of the Nigeria Police and Ilisan township. Confirming the incident to newsmen, the chairman of the Ilisan Development Council Chairman, Wemmy Osude, said the information reaching him suggests that the kidnapping incident occurred between the Area Command and Ilisan City Gate.

 “A resident of Ilisan (name unconfirmed) was reportedly shot in the knee and is receiving medical attention at Babcock Teaching Hospital. Other victims were taken into the bush. While waiting for additional information, please contact your loved ones who may be plying that road at about this time to be cautious.

I have spoken to the Sagamu Area Commander about this incident, and hopefully, we trust that all the security agents will go after these criminals and rescue these people.” he said

The state police command is yet to confirm the incident.
