Kidnappers releases ex-minister Adewole’s son.
Dayo Adewole, the son of the former Health Minister, Isaac Adewole, was earlier today released from the net of his abductors.
Leading to his release, we were unable to ascertain if a ransom was paid or not.
Dayo regained his freedom 24 hours after he was kidnapped by armed men on Tuesday at his farm located in Iroko village in Fiditi area of Oyo State.
A close aide to the ex-minister confirmed the new development, noting that the young man was indeed released yesterday.
“The minister’s son regained freedom just this evening and he is with his family in Ibadan.
“Details are still sketchy but we will issue a press release soon,” the aide said.
According to informed sources, the kidnappers covered their faces with masks to hide their identity before taking Dayo away to an unknown destination.
In connection with the abduction, officers of the Oyo Police Command have arrested Dayo’s domestic staff and three other suspects.
