Some kidnappers abducted three residents of Ogun State on Saturday and demanded a sum of N10m and hard drugs as ransom.

The kidnappers also allegedly shot one person while struggling to kidnap him but later escaped from them.

They  hid in a bush in Obada-Oko in the Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State and unleashed their terror on the people in the community.

They allegedly went away with three residents after the police from the Obada-Oko division engaged them in a gun duel.

Narrating his ordeal, the survivor, Razaq Lasisi, said he narrowly escaped from the kidnappers.

Lasisi, who spoke with our correspondent on the telephone, said the incident happened on Saturday.

Lasisi, who said he was a former secondary school principal, narrated that on his way returning home from his place of work around 9pm, there was an attempt to kidnap him.

He said the spot where the kidnappers wanted to abduct him was called Ogba Kehinde, a stone’s throw to his house.

He said he saw a car with all the doors opened being parked at the entrance of Ogba Kehinde.

According to him, Ogba Kehinde is a six-acre land with some buildings on that land but for some time now, the land has been abandoned by the owner.

Lasisi said the palace was being used for a poultry farm long before Obada-Oko developed to the present state.

He claimed that the buildings on the acres of land now harboured criminals.

Speaking on the fate of the kidnapped victims, Lasisi said the kidnappers have called the community and demanded a sum of N10 million and some hard drugs as ransom.

He said, “The kidnappers have called today and asked us to pay N10 million before they can release their victims.
