Four students, who were apparently heading home for the holidays, were reportedly kidnapped by armed suspects along the Akunnu-Ajowa route in the Akoko region of Ondo state.
The Kogi State Polytechnic students were reportedly attacked on Friday in the notoriously criminal Ago Jinadu Axis in Akoko, which is known for kidnapping in particular.
As a result, the people of the Ajowa hamlet and its surroundings are gripped by gear.
When reached, ACP Muri Agboola, the Police Area Commander in Kare, stated that his men have been searching the forests around the Akunnu-Ajowa Akoko route for the kidnapped students.
Funmi Odunlami, a spokesperson for the state police command, could not be reached for comment.
