Men of the Ondo State Security Network also known as Amotekun Corps have rescued the wife of the Chief of Staff to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, Olugbenga Ale.
NewsArena recalls that gunmen on Friday abducted Mrs. Ale around Owena after the Joseph Ayo Babalola University while on her way back to Ondo from Lagos State.
This came barely twenty-four hours after a first-class traditional ruler in Ondo State, the Oluifon of Ifon in Ose local government, Oba Isreal Adeusi, was murdered by suspected kidnappers.
It was gathered that Amotekun in collaboration with local hunters and vigilantes recused Mrs. Ale on Saturday morning.
Confirming the release of the Chief of Staff’s wife, the Commander of the Amotekun Corps, Adetunji Adeleye, said it was too early to disclose how the victim was rescued since it was a security matter.
“We thank God for the achievement, it was not easy. But we are are able to arrest some persons in connection with the matter,” he said.
Speaking further, Adeleye disclosed that they have also arrested some suspects in connection with the murder of the Olufon of Ifon, Oba Israel Adeusi.
“We are closing in on the hoodlums. We also arrested some persons at Elegbeka in connection with the killing of the monarch. But they are under interrogation and they are helping us with useful information,” Adeleye said.
