Some unknown gunmen on Tuesday evening abducted Dayo Adewole, the son of the immediate past Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole.

According to the Nation, Dayo Adewole was waylaid at gunpoint on his farm in Iroko, near Fiditi in Afijio Local Government Area of Oyo State at about 6pm.

Although, there were some staff with Dayo, the abductors, however, took him away to an unknown destination.

A source said, 

” The villagers were alerted by the staff who survived the ordeal. Local hunters were mobilised by the Oniroko of Iroko.
“The hunters were said to have located the car of the abductors along the road to Iware village near Iroko.
“But they are yet to locate Dayo’s whereabouts. It was suspected that the kidnappers might have changed their vehicle following persistent announcement on radio after Oniroko had raised the alarm on air.”

A top official of the Federal Ministry of Health said: ” We are in sad mood over the abduction. Dayo was a graduate of agriculture and he opted for farming.

“He has been managing his farm peacefully in Iroko until he was abducted by some gunmen on Tuesday.”

The abductors are yet to contact the family as at time of filing report.
