Some gunmen have kidnapped a man, identified as Mr. Ekpenyong Ita, in Abeokuta, Ogun State, while he was returning from a friend’s house.

Mr. Ita and his friend were said to have boarded a 5-passenger capacity taxi on July 30, 2020 at 3pm, but he has not been found since.

Mr. Bolaji, Ekpenyong’s friend with whom he was in the taxi, was forced to jump down from car that was in motion, at gunpoint.

The Area divisional headquarters of the Nigerian Police, Oke-Ilewo, Abeokuta, Ogun State, confirmed the incident.

“The family of Ekpenyong Ita, on July 30, 2020, reported that their son, Ekpeyong Ita, went missing on his way home from a friend’s house,” the Divisional Public Relations officer said.

In a message of appeal from the family of the missing man, his mother, Mrs Ita, appealed to the general public to contact the nearest police station if anyone finds any useful information.
