Unknown gunmen yesterday invade and abduct the traditional ruler of Elete town in Kogi State, Chief Aminu Aku.
According to reports, Aku was kidnapped by five masked gunmen in the evening, at about 8:30pm, on Friday in his town located on the Lokoja-Ajaokuta highway.
The incident came barely 24 hours after the kidnap of two chieftains of the Kwara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (who has since regain their freedom) on the Lokoja-Okene Road.
Aku, a third class traditional ruler, was said to be returning from a function in Ajaokuta and was just alighting from his car when he was abducted.
He was subsequently driven away in a vehicle brought by the abductors.
Waploaded learnt that the gunmen had already called to demand for a N10 million ransom.
The state Commissioner of Police Yakubu Usman, however, said the abduction of the traditional ruler was yet to be confirmed.
