Kidnappers struck again in Ekiti State in the early hours of Saturday, abducting five persons in Ise Ekiti.

The Administrative Secretary of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Ekiti, Mr. Muslim Omoleke, was abducted on Thursday in Iwaraja, but released on Friday night in Ilesha.

The victims of the latest abduction case in Ekiti were said to have been seized while travelling in two vehicles along Ise Ekiti in Ise/Orun Local Government Area of the state.

It was learnt that two of the victims were later released while the others were still being held captive by the kidnappers.

Those still held hostage were one Pastor Ojo, Kadiri Oluwasegun, and a driver only identified as Jimoh.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Alberto Adeyemi, confirmed the release of two of the victims.

He said police were on the trail of the kidnappers.

The PPRO urged residents to help the police with information by exposing strange faces and movements around them.
