A Business Magnate, Otunba Olurotimi Ajayi-Smith who had been kidnapped about a month ago has not regained his freedom.
Otunba Ajayi-Smith who is a civil Engineering contractor, is still said to be in kidnappers’den one month after he was kidnapped around Ijebu-Ode township.
His kidnappers were said to have contacted the family, demanding payment of N90m ransom if they ever wished to see the business magnate again.
A family source who craved anonymity disclosed this to our Correspondent.
The ugly incident was said to have been reported at Igbeba police station, Ijebu-Ode but one month after, the man is still languishing in the gulag of the kidnappers.
The family has been said to be in great distress since the disappearance of the Engineer described as his family’s bread Winner, hence they have been calling on the Nigeria police to step up their efforts to free the civil engineering contractor from the gulag of the kidnappers.
Police Public Relations Officer of Ogun State police command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, on a telephone interview with our Reporter over this incident said that the police had not abandoned the the case, but has been working assiduously to free the business magnate.
Oyeyemi said that the police had even taken their search to as far as Edo and Delta States in the course of investigating this kidnap case, promising that the police would not relent in ensuring that the Civil Engineer regained his freedom very soon.
