Two persons were late last Saturday abducted by gunmen in Ikun-Oba Akoko in Akoko South West Local Government area of Ondo State.

One of the abducted men was identified as Hon Surajudeen while the other man was also said to be another prominent indigene from the area.

The two men were said to be coming from the celebration of the annual Ikun Day.

A source said the family of the kidnapped victims had yet to be contacted by the abductors for possible payment of ransom.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Tee-Leo Ikoro, confirmed the abduction of the two persons, adding that investigations have commenced on the incident to ensure that the men are rescued unhurt.
