Along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Friday, it was suspected that an undetermined number of motorists had been abducted.

NewsReport that as a result of the situation, numerous automobiles decided to turn around and go in the opposite direction, causing tension to rise along the road.

Around KM 24, on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, near Dominion University City of Faith, the incident took place.

An eyewitness who spoke with our correspondent said nobody could ascertain the number of people kidnapped but three private vehicles was affected.

He listed the affected as a Jeep, a Toyota Camry Car, and a Sedan vehicle whose model could not be ascertained.

The eyewitness who was traveling from Lagos to Ibadan said there was fear among motorists and passengers around the spot.

He said, “I can confirm some motorists have just been kidnapped near Dominion University, Ibadan. Many vehicles had to turn back but the road is free as I am talking to you.

“I saw three vehicles with their doors wide open and not a single person was found inside the three vehicles and there is no trace of where they ran to.

“One of the cars smashed its bonnet on the wall while the one behind jammed it from behind but there was no sign of an accident. We are sure it was a case of kidnap because the vehicles were empty.

“At first, we taught it was a robbery but if it was not. We should have seen those that were robbed. There was nobody at the scene when my vehicle got there.”

The witness said when they moved away from the scene, they saw some hunters and vigilantes heading toward the place the incident happened.

When contacted, the Amotekun Commandant in the state, Coln Olayinka Olayanju said he has no information about the latest kidnapping in the state.

He said, “I am not aware of such development. There is no way such a thing would happen and we won’t be informed. Such a thing is strange to me. I will find out and get back to you.”

The police are yet to react to the development.
