A man and his wife whose name could not be ascertained have been kidnapped in Iragbiji, Boripe local government, Osun state.
The spokesperson of the police in the state, Yemisi Opalola, confirmed the incident.
She said the incident happened Saturday along Osogbo-Iragbiji way.
Opalola said security operatives have been combing the bush, with assurance that the efforts of the police will yield positive results.
The state has witnessed myriads of kidnap cases, particularly since the beginning of this year.
Last week Wednesday, suspected herdsmen abducted a Fulani herder, Muhammed Jubril, and his whereabouts is still unknown.
On April 3, the leader of the Ogboni fraternity, popularly known as ‘Ogboni Agbaye,” Oba Adetoyese Olakisan, perished in an accident while trailing the kidnappers of his two wives.
A policeman and one other woman who was involved in the accident also died before the rescue of the victims three days later.
