Suspected gunmen have kidnapped the Oba of Idofin, Shedrack Durojaiye Obibeni, and his wife in Yagba East Local Government Area of Kogi.

According to report, they were kidnapped along Makutu-Idofin road in Kogi State at about 5 pm on Monday.

Confirming the incident, Mr Abdulrasak Asiru, Yagba East Local Government Council Chairman described it as “very shocking” and “sad”.

Asiru said that he was still in shock over the incident which had not happened in the area for almost two years.

“I as the council chairman and the people of Yagba East are in great shock over the kidnap of our respected Oba and his wife this evening.

“This is because we in this LGA have a very robust security architecture keeping vigil and warding off criminal elements away from us.

“This incident was well planned by the kidnappers because from what I learnt, the Oba and his wife only moved out to see something, and in less than 10 minutes that incident happened.
