Unknown gunmen have abducted the wife of Mr. Olugbenga Ale, Chief of Staff to Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.

Mrs. Ale was kidnapped at the Owena area of the state on Thursday.

According to a source, her abductors ran into the bush after the incident.

“The woman was abducted at Owena along Ondo Road.

“The case has been reported to the security agencies especially the Amotekun and army to comb everywhere and we are expecting a feedback soon.”

An aide to Governor Akeredolu, who asked not to be named, also confirmed the story.

He said, “The governor is aware of the incident already and has also visited the house of the Chief of Staff at Alagbaka with plans to ensure the safe release of the woman.

“He could not even present the 2021 budget before the state’s House of Assembly and had to send one of his commissioners to do the presentation on his behalf due to the incident,” he said.

This is coming barely 24 hours after Oba Adegoke Isreal Adeusi, traditional ruler of Ifon in Ose Local Government Area of the state, was kidnapped and killed by unknown persons.
