Three unidentified women have been kidnapped in Ekiti state by unknown gunmen.The women were kidnapped with their husbands and unspecified number of children along Igbole-igbosin road while travelling in a Toyota Rav 4 Sports utility vehicle to Ibadan, Oyo state, for a wedding.

The kidnappers are reported to have later dropped the men and the children while the women were driven away in the car after collecting phones and other valuables from the victims.

The Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, worried about this development has written the Inspector General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, calling for his intervention to stem the spate of kidnappings that had hit the state in the last few weeks.

No fewer than five people, including a former Chief Medical Director of Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, his wife, a senior nurse at the Federal Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti, and a lecturer of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, had been kidnapped in the last two weeks in the state.
