Barely three days after the release of four victims, who were kidnapped on the Ibadan/Ijebu Ode Road, gunmen on Monday abducted three women on the road at the Onipe community, via Idi Ayunre.
It was gathered that the gunmen came out from the bush and shot indisrciminately to scare travellers and later whisked away the women to an unknown destination.
The names of the abducted women were given as Mrs Okeowo, Mrs Abosede Adebayo and Mrs Bola Ogunrinde.
It was learnt that Ogunrinde, believed to be a military officer, drove a Toyota RAV-4, with number plate AGL 66 FY.
Two men had lodged a report about the incident at the Idi Ayunre Division around 10am.
It was gathered that men of the Idi Ayunre Divisional Police Station, in collaboration with personnel of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit, Counter Terrorism Unit, local hunters and vigilante group members were on the trail of the kidnappers.
It will be recalled that on Tuesday, April 6, three quarry site workers and a female commuter were kidnapped on the Ibadan/Ijebu-Ode Road.
Two bank officials, two commuters and a palm wine tapper were on March 15 kidnapped at Ibuso Gbooro, close to the Dally junction by a quarry.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Oyo State Command, Adewale Osifeso, who confirmed the latest incident, said the combined teams of the AKS, Idi Ayunre Division, other tactical teams, local hunters and the vigilante group had been actively on the trail of the hoodlums.
He said efforts were on to rescue the victims.
