Olori Regina Akinrinmade, the wife of Ondo monarch; Oba Rufus Akinrinmade, the Orunja of Odigbo kingdom and her two daughters have been abducted by kidnappers and demanded N60 million ransom for their release.
While speaking with newsmen, the Odofin of Odigbo kingdom, Chief Olu Akinsawe confirmed the abduction in Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State.
He disclosed that the monarch’s wife, her two daughters and their drivers were abducted by some unknown gunmen on Saturday along Owo-Oba-Ikare Akoko road while heading to Akungba Akoko.
“They are still in the kidnappers’ den as I speak; the security agencies are yet to know their whereabouts.
“The abductors have reduced their ransom from N100 million to N60 million. We have been praying for their safety, we, therefore, appeal to the abductors to release them unhurt,” Akinsawe said.
He, however, called on the state government and security agencies within and around the area to help rescue the monarch’s family from the unknown gunmen.
