Abducted Ekiti Monarch Regains Freedom

Oba David Oyewumi, the traditional ruler of Ilemeso-Ekiti in Oye Council Area who was abducted by bandits has been freed from captivity.

Oyewumi was abducted by gunmen last Thursday around 8:30pm when they gained entrance to his palace through the fence.

The kidnappers contacted the family last Saturday and demanded a N20 million ransom for his release.

Confirming his release, Ekiti Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Sunday Abutu, said the monarch had been left off the hook and reunited with his family.

“I can confirm to you that the monarch had been released from captivity. He had also reunited with his family.

“However, he is presently receiving medical care in one of the facilities in the state as a result of the trauma he passed through”.

Abutu added the Command was not aware of any ransom paid to secure the monarch’s release, saying his freedom was necessitated by the concerted actions taken by the police and other security agencies.

Ekiti Amotekun Corps Commander, Brig Gen. Joe Komolafe, said the traditional ruler was rescued at Obbo Ayegunle, Ekiti Local Government area of Kwara State with the support of the Vigilante members in Kwara State for the Amotekun operatives.

Komolafe said: “When we went into the bush, we tracked the traditional ruler to the area, the Vigilante from Kwara State joined our team and we were able to rescue him in the night in the forest at Obbo-Ile, Kwara State.

“No ransom was paid. We have brought him home and he is currently receiving medical attention”.
