Wife of a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State popularly known as 50/50, was abducted by unknown gunmen on Friday night.
A popular chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, Ajibola Oyedele, widely known as 50/50, has been abducted by unknown gunmen on Friday night.
According to Vanguard, the incident occurred at about 8:00pm at their Omuo Oke community in Ekiti East Local Givernment Area of Ekiti State.
In a social media post, Oyedele explained that his wife surrendered to the kidnappers at gunpoint.
“At gunpoint, my wife surrendered the key to our Nissan Ultimate to the kidnappers and they drove her away to an unknown destination.
“We have not heard anything from her since the incident. All her lines are switched off,” he said.
Ajibola, who defected to the APC in July this year, was a member of the last Ekiti State House of Assembly and was the only member of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the assembly at its denouement.
He was appointed Special Assistant on Parliamentary Affairs by Governor Ayodele Fayose but he resigned from the government on May 31, 2016, citing poor remuneration as his reason for resigning from the government.
