Kwara: Gunmen Abduct Four Guests Returning From Naming Ceremony

Four individuals, including three guests attending a naming ceremony and a vigilante member, have been forcefully taken by suspected gunmen in the Asa local government area of Kwara State. Reports indicate that the abductors, in a considerable number, ambushed the guests as they were returning home from the ceremony held in Aboto village. The occurrence transpired on Tuesday evening while the guests were en route to Ilorin from the aforementioned ceremony. Saka Ibrahim, the Chairman of the Kwara State vigilante, verified the incident during a phone conversation on Thursday. According to him, a resident of the community organized a naming ceremony for his newborn child and was transporting some guests back home when their vehicle was attacked. As a result, three male guests and one vigilante member who attempted a rescue were kidnapped. Notably, the vigilante official was not in uniform and was unarmed. Since then, the vigilante group has been conducting a search in the surrounding area, but no progress has been made in locating the victims. Saka expressed deep concern because the abductors have not made any contact with the families of the victims or demanded any ransom. SP Okasanmi Ajayi, the spokesperson for the Kwara Police Command, was unable to confirm the incident. Okasanmi mentioned that he had not received any information about the incident as he was away on official duty. He assured that he would contact the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) and provide an update at a later time.
