The Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Mrs. Ngozi Onadeko, says the  news going round that  twenty five  persons were kidnapped in Ibarapa area of the state is untrue.

Mrs Onadeko stated this in Eleyele, Ibadan while parading some suspected hoodlums.

News had filtered into town on Thursday afternoon that an 18-seat bus from Abeokuta in Ogun State, transporting passengers along Igboora-Eruwa Road, was attacked by some gunmen and all the 18 passengers of  the bus were abducted to unknown destination.

In a separate interview, the coordinator, Igangan Development Advocates, Mr. Oladiran Oladokun, insisted that the story was true.

  The police boss in the state said the Divisional Police Officer of Igboora and the Area Commander for Ibarapa were with her yesterday and mentioned nothing of such to her.

Mrs Onadeko, however, urged all the residents of the state to go about their normal business activities without any fear.
