Unknown gunmen have kidnaped three persons including a couple at Uso community in Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State.
While the couple who were travelling along the route were stopped and abducted by the gunmen suspected to be kidnappers, one other person, a resident of Uso community, Olatunbosun Johnson, was kidnapped in a farm within the community.
The couple were travelling with their three children when the hoodlums stopped them and whisked the couple away leaving their children behind.
According to a source, the gunmen locked the doors of the car before dragging the husband and wife into the forest while their underage children reported the case at the police station.
However, it was learnt that Johnson was abducted with one other person on Sunday while they were in search of sand to fill a building.
A family source said Johnson who went with four other persons was unlucky as he was abducted with the Hausa man who was hired for a menial job, but others were lucky to escape being kidnapped.
He disclosed that the incident was reported to the police while a team of Amotekun Corps, Police and the military combed the forest in the area with success.
Spokesperson of the state police command , Mr Tee Leo Ikoro, said men from the state police command had been combing the area to ensure the release of the victims.
He said the couple were abducted on Tuesday while their abductors left their children behind.
