Kidnappers In Military Uniform Abduct Federal Workers On Lagos-Ibadan Road, Demand N40million

Two staff of the Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB) have been abducted around the Isara axis of Lagos-Ibadan expressway end of Ogun State.

The victims were said to be on their way back to Lagos from Ibadan before the car in which they were travelling broke down around 6:45am, and while in the process of fixing the car, the gunmen in military camouflage emerged from the bush and marched them away.

The Executive Secretary of Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB), Tope Adaramola, confirmed the incident.

Adaramola said the kidnappers had contacted the management demanding N20million each for the victims to regain freedom.

He said the kidnappers used the mobile phone of one of the victims to demand the ransom, adding that the management had equally reported the incident at the Divisional Police Headquarters in Isara.

Adaramola added that those abducted were junior workers of the council, that their salaries were not up to N60,000

From the Institute 


Dear Distinguished Members,

As you may have probably heard through news reports, two members of staff of our Council, namely; Adeola Bude and Sola Olawuyi were kidnapped along Lagos-Ibadan expressway in the early hours of Sunday on their way back to Lagos. 

Pronto, on getting wind of the story, I had swung into action by contacting high level security operatives in Ogun State and beyond and they have intensified efforts to get the staff released unharmed, through the contact established with the kidnappers. 

Whilst banking on the mercy of God and the intensive moves by the various security outfits, we indeed ask for your prayers at this time for their release. 

Any vital information on this incident should please be directed to me or the Executive Secretary, for further action.

Thank you for standing with the Council to get over this unpleasant episode.

Yours sincerely,

*Rotimi Edu, mni, FCIB*
