Kidnappers of the Oniyani of Iyani-Akoko in Ondo State, Oba Joel Daodu, are demanding N15 million before the Oba could regain his freedom.

The traditional ruler was kidnapped along Ose Oba Akoko axis of Ikare-Owo road, the same spot where the former Regent of Akungba-Akoko was kidnapped two years ago.

Confirming the incident, Public Relations Officer of the Ondo State Police Command, Femi Joseph, told Channels Television that men of the command were searching for the hoodlums.

The police P.R.O, however, expressed a firm belief that the traditional ruler would be rescued from his captors as the force is already on their trail.
