The victim, His Royal Highness Adebisi Obademi, is the paramount ruler of Apaa Bunu in Kabba/Bunu Local Government Area of Kogi State.
He was said to have been seized by the hoodlums, who were reportedly masked, at gunpoint at Akiso Aba Ebira, near Agbadu Bunu.
“We just heard gunshots around Akiso and we saw the royal father dragged on the tarred road before they bundled him into his vehicle and also carried a sack owned by the royal father. We don’t know the content of the bag,” an eyewitness told Vanguard.
“We couldn’t identify them because they were masked and probably trailed the royal father to that point. The sporadic gunshots scared everyone in Agbadu as we scampered to safety. So we couldn’t rescue the Oba,” the eyewitness added.
