Unknown gunmen have kidnapped a pregnant woman, simply identified as Mrs. Ogunbunmi, in Abeokuta, Ogun state capital.

Mrs. Ogunbunmi, who is due for delivery, was said to have left her home in Oke Lantoro, to the State Hospital, Ijaiye, Abeokuta.

It was reliably gathered that her husband, Ogunbunmi Lateef, said he had received a WhatsApp message notifying him of his wife’s kidnap by the abductors.

Confirming the incident, on Thursday in a terse statement, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Omolola Odutola said the suspected abduction had been reported to the command.

She said, “One Ogunbunmi Lateef of Oke Lantoro, Abeokuta reported that his pregnant wife due for delivery left home for State Hospital, Ijaiye, Abeokuta.

“He received a WhatsApp message confirming the abduction of his wife by unknown armed men” she said.
