Gunmen abduct female lawyer in Kogi

Unknown gunmen have kidnapped a female legal practitioner, Barr. Rabi Ozavize Ovosi along the Lokoja-Okene highway in Kogi State.

Ovosi, who is a mother of two was reportedly kidnapped on Friday while on transit.

A family member of the victim, Abdulateef Ovosi said the abductors contacted the family on Sunday for the first time demanding for ransoms.

“As at this morning (Sunday) , I heard a ransom has been made, but I have not actually ascertain that now.  The family were holding a meeting when the kidnapers called. As we speak, their lines are no more reachable for us to know what amount they are demanding.

“We are all worried and we are praying asking everybody to join us in praying for her safe return,” he said.

When contacted, Kogi State Police Commissioner, Mr Wilson Inalegwu, who confirmed the incident said over 100 security operatives have since been deployed to comb the bushes to secure her safe release.

The latest case of kidnapping is coming barely a day after some unknown gunmen abducted and murdered the Osun State Permanent Secretary Bureau of General Services, Mrs Olufunke Oluwakemi Kolawole around Okene area of the state while on her way to Abuja.
