The Proprietor and owner of The Nice Hotel, Omoloju area in Iseyin, Mr. Dejo Ajuwon has been kidnapped on his farm at ‘Serafu’ village along Moniya-Iseyin road on Wednesday.
Security source reveals the case was the second of such at the Serafu village in the last one month as a friend to a farm owner close to the village was also snatched in early December, and the sum of two million naira ransom was paid before his release.
Mr. Ajuwon relocated to Iseyin, his hometown, after retirement from active service to establish his farming and hospitality businesses since almost ten years ago.
Worried about the spate of the kidnap incidents at the ‘Serafu’ village and the farm settlements there, Iseyin residents have challenged the police and other military authorities to comb the village and settlements around the area to get more intelligence about the operations and possibly make arrests.
As at the evening of Thursday, there has been no communication from the kidnappers to know their demand for bile security personnel in concert with local securitymen were said to be on the trail of the kidnappers.
