Gunmen reportedly abducted the farm manager at Flourishing Poultry Farm in the Idowa community of Odogbolu Local Government area, Ogun State. The victim, Tunde Osifowokan, is the younger brother of the farm’s owner. The incident occurred when the gunmen arrived at the farm in a commando style and demanded to see the owner. As none of the workers could provide the owner’s whereabouts, Osifowokan identified himself as the owner’s brother, leading to his abduction.

In a related incident, a member of the Hausa community in the town, Isiaka Aileru, has also been reported missing since he went to his farm on the same day. There are fears that he may have been abducted by the same gunmen.

Chief Yusuf Olusanya, the Sobaloju of Idowa, confirmed the incident and stated that the gunmen wore masks and shot sporadically during the abduction. He also mentioned that one driver was shot in the neck while trying to escape and that the same gang might be responsible for the disappearance of Isiaka Aileru.

The Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alamutu, confirmed the abduction and assured that efforts are being made to secure the release of the victim. He urged the family to give the police 24 hours before making an official complaint if the missing person does not return home.

The police are deploying their resources and intelligence to ensure the safe return of Tunde Osifowokan and to investigate the incidents. The community is anxiously waiting for any updates and hoping for a swift resolution to the situation.
