Gunmen kidnap Gen.Oluwole Rotimi's wife

12 December 2012, 10:07

Ibadan - Titilayo, the wife of retired Brig-Gen. Oluwole Rotimi, has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen in Ibadan.

The News Agency of  Nigeria (NAN) reports  that the victim  was kidnapped around 6:30 pm on Monday in front of  her company, AOK Logistics Limited, located on Old Ife Road  in Ibadan.

She was said to have been abducted by four armed men while she was leaving her office at the close of work.

NAN gathered  that the incident, which was reported at Egbeda Police Station, had been transferred to the state Criminal Investigation Department, Iyaganku, Ibadan.

The spokesman  of the Oyo State Police Command, DSP Ayodele Lanade, who confirmed the incident, said  the victim  was driving  away  in her black Mercedes Benz car when she was accosted.

 “According to  the reports we gathered, two security men attached to her company removed the barricade on the gate for her car to drive out of the office complex.

 “In the process, two armed men approached and ordered  the driver to stop the car at gun point.

 “A green Nissan Primera suddenly reversed and blocked her car  while she was ordered to get into the Nissan car.

 `` The manner of  abduction was  strange when compared to similar cases of kidnapping.

 "We found out that there is a rift between the woman and her workers over three months salary which led to agitation by the aggrieved workers,’’  he said.

The police spokesman,  however, said that no ransom demand had been presented  while no arrest had been made.
