Ondo Poly Bursar escapes kidnap attempt
Bursar of the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, Mr. Adejuwon Matthew, has narrowly escaped being kidnapped by Waterworks/Upenmen Road, Owo, Ondo State.
Adejuwon was riding in his car on Wednesday when the gunmen were said to have fired shots at him.
A spokesman for the Polytechnic, Mr Samuel Ojo, said Adejuwon left the campus after working hours and headed for Akungba-Akoko in Akoko South-West Local Government Area of the state.
Ojo stated that it was along with Waterworks/Upenmen on Owo-Akungba-Akoko Road, that Adejuwon ran into some herdsmen crossing the highway with their cattle apparently to stop vehicles on the highway.
He said Adejuwon’s driver managed to manoeuvre through before cattle could cover the entire highway.
It was at that moment he said gunshots were fired from the supposed herdsmen which impaled the car of the bursar but they escaped being hit by the bullets.
Last week, 16 persons including traders were abducted along the Owo-Akure highway.
Men of the Ondo State Police Command reduced 10 and the other six were released after payment of N5m ransom.
