Ekiti State Commissioner for Agriculture, Chief Olabode Folorunso, who was abducted by unknown gunmen last week has regained his freedom from his abductors.
He was released a few hours ago unhurt and has since rejoined his family.
Government is grateful for the concern shown by members of the public during his period of incarceration.
Similarly, government appreciates the effort of the security agencies in securing his release as well as ensuring the security of lives and properties on our roads.
Government also expresses sympathy to the family of the late Councillor, Mr Olatunji Omotosho, who was killed by the gunmen during the abduction on April 26, 2020.
The State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, who is billed to receive Chief Olabode later today, says the state government is doing everything possible to rid the state of criminal elements. He urges the people of the state to remain vigilant and report any suspicious movement/activities to the law enforcement agencies or call the state emergency lines.
