Efforts to speak with the monarch of Akunu-Akoko, Oba Olufemi Saba, were unsuccessful at the time of writing this report.

A similar report has just come in that gunshots from kidnappers are being heard between Imesi Ekiti and Irun Akoko, where some travelers were kidnapped some time ago.

Farmers returning from their farms along the Ado Ekiti to Ikare road confirmed the incident.

A resident of Irun Akoko, Mr. Ade Ikusemori, who said he left the farm in that troubled area, called on security agents, hunters, and volunteers to rush there to rescue the innocent victims.

No one can ascertain the number of people kidnapped at this time, and the road has been deserted.
