Man uses Commando style to escape from kidnappers in Ondo
Idowu Shaba, is said to have escaped from his kidnappers’ hideout in the forest when the kidnappers were sleeping.
The victim, a cocoa dealer, and an unknown lady were kidnapped on their way to Ido Ani in the state’s Ose Local Government Area for a church service on Saturday when hoodlums stopped them on the road and pulled them into the woods.
According to a source, after the kidnapping, the kidnappers sought N10 million in ransom from the victim’s family before fleeing.
Shaba had pretended to be sound asleep, snoring loudly throughout the night, according to the source.
He said, “After the abductors saw that the victims had slept off, they too fell asleep. Shaba seized the opportunity to carry their weapons and used their sharp cutlasses to kill two of them and wounded another who ran away.
“He took his abductors’ Ak-47 rifles, cutlasses, and other dangerous weapons in their possession and he used the opportunity to rescue the other lady and both escaped.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, confirmed the incident but said the victim escaped but did not kill the abductors.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
