The Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Alhaji Sulyman Buhari confirmed the incident Friday night in an interview with journalists. Buhari explained that the incident occurred at about 10am on Friday while Balogun- Fulani and Adekanye were returning to Ilorin on their way from Abuja.
According to him, “We received a call from the line of the chairman around this time, (10am) telling us of the kidnapping issue. No ransom was mentioned and all attempts to make further enquiries from them proved abortive as the line was no longer available.
“We are on it to see if we can still establish a link with them. We have taken all the necessary steps and linked up with relevant security operatives to ensure their safety and eventual release,” he added.
