The governor of Ekiti, Biodun Oyebanji, has called on the Police, Department of State Services (DSS) and the Amotekun Corps to ensure the release of kidnapped state chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Paul Omotoso, and two others.
Omotoso and two others were abducted by gunmen along Agbado-Imesi road on Saturday and whisked to an unknown destination by gunmen.
Oyebanji said “Omotoso should not only be rescued unscathed” but that the perpetrators of the dastardly act be nabbed and made to face the full weight of the laws.
Oyebanji, represented by his Deputy, Monisade Afuye, gave the directive on Sunday when he visited Omotoso’s family at Imesi Ekiti, in Ayekire Local Government Area of the state to sympathise with them on the devastating incident.
He assured that the state forest reserves extending from Agbado-Imesi-Ise would be resuscitated and put to use to dislodge those using the area as hideout.
