A Chinese expatriate was on Tuesday evening kidnapped in Ekiti State and his whereabouts is yet to be ascertained by security agencies.
The man was said to have been kidnapped at Igbemo Ekiti in Irepodun Ifelodun Local Government Area of the State.
The expatriate who was identified to be part of the experts supervising the construction of Ilupeju-Ire-Igbemo-Ijan road, was said to have been waylaid at Igbemo Ekiti while driving in a Hilux Van and forcefully taken away by the gunmen.
The latest abduction happened three months after a similar incident had occurred in the State when two foreigners were kidnapped along new Ado-Iyin road.
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officers, Ekiti Command, ASP Sunday Abutu, said the operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) have launched a manhunt for the kidnappers.
“Our RRS men swung into action immediately the news broke out. They are combing all the surrounding bushes and we are sure that the abductee will be released soon”.
