The abductors of a community leader in Ogun State, Tajudeen Omotayo, have demanded a ransom of N100 million before they will release him.

Omotayo is the leader of a community in Imope town in Ijebu-North Local Government Area of the state in south-west Nigeria.

He was abducted by gunmen on Saturday last week while returning from a meeting held in Ijebu-Ode town in his vehicle marked W 3J9.

The community leader was reportedly accosted at the Oke-Eri area of Imope where the armed men pulled him out and took him away to an unknown destination.

His vehicle was, however, abandoned on the Ijebu-Ode – Oru – Ibadan Road.

Two days after the incident, Omotayo’s abductors were said to have reached out to his family to demand a ransom for his release.

They reportedly requested the sum of N200 million initially before reducing the money to N100 million.

The police authorities in the state also said the victim’s family confirmed to them that the kidnappers had demanded a ransom.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, who is the Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun, stated that the command would not be part of the arrangement to pay a ransom for the victim’s freedom.

Omotayo’s kidnap came barely a week after gunmen abducted two female students of the Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU) in Ago-Iwoye.
