Financial Secretary of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State, Mr. Kayode Oni was abducted at the weekend at a location between Efon and Erio, about 4:30 pm, while heading for Aramoko, the headquarters of Ekiti West Local Government.
The PDP chieftain was said to be returning from Efon where he officiated at the party’s local government congress.
PDP spokesman Jackson Adebayo told reporters yesterday that the kidnappers had established contact with the victim’s wife and younger brother, demanding N30 million ransom.
He said Oni, who was in his car with his daughter and grandson, was waylaid and taken to an unknown destination.
“The family has been contacted. They told the abductors that the entire family can’t even raise N1 million and they are asking for a whopping N30 million.
“The family told us that they have complained at the police station in Efon.
“Our party is not resting. We are making contacts to ensure his release.”
