Chief David Obadofin, the traditional ruler of Aghara, Kabba-Bunu local government area of Kogi State, has died in the custody of his abductors after 12 days in captivity.


A source told DAILY POST that following torture from his abductors, the monarch died last Thursday.

He lamented that when the abductors noticed that Pa Obadofin was becoming too weak, they agreed to collect the sum of N2m for his release and that of one other lady, identified as Temidayo Elewa

The abductors, according to the source, blindfolded the lady (Elewa) and relocated her to a different place in the bush in a bid to cover up their tracks while waiting for the ransom of the monarch to be delivered.

Before the ransom could be delivered to the abductors in the bush, Pa. Obadofin was said to have died.

According to the locals, Elewa, who was abducted alongside the monarch, had been set free and reunited with her family since Saturday.

Reports said a mobile tailor who spotted her roaming helped her out.
