She was kidnapped by unknown gunmen 10 days ago.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr Olufemi Olanipekun Oyeleye, confirmed that the business woman was rescued along Ikire expressway by the police patrol team from Ikire Divisional Police Headquarters.

The commissioner who spoke through the state Police Public Relation Officer (PPRO), Egbedele Ajibade, noted that the policemen were on the trail of the abductors of the woman.

He said the victim was taken to Oluyoro Private Hospital in Ikire for first aid treatment immediately she was rescued and later moved to the Police Clinic in Osogbo for adequate medical attention.

The police boss said that the business woman was eventually handed over to the Iyaloja General of Osun State, Alhaja Awawu Asindemade and that she has been reunited with her family members in a better condition.

It would be recalled that the Kajola-Ijesa market has been closed down since Alhaja Adegbokun was abducted at her residence at Araromi Street on May 19.
