Abductors demand N200m ransom for Gen. Rotimi’s wife


The abductors of Titilola, wife of former military governor of the defunct Western Region, Brig-Gen Oluwole Rotimi (retd), have demanded N200m as ransom from the family.

A close family source, who spoke  on Wednesday on the condition of anonymity, told our correspondent in Ibadan.

Mrs. Rotimi was abducted on Monday by gunmen, who stormed her company,  OAK Logistics Limited, and whisked her away in a green Nissan Primera car at about 6.30pm.

The Oyo State Police Command through its Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ayodele Lanade, said the command was not aware of any ransom being demanded by the abductors.

Lanade, however, stated that investigations were ongoing on the matter.

The PPRO added that the police had beefed up security around the company.

When correspondents visited Mrs. Rotimi’s residence on Wednesday, his aides said they had been instructed not to allow anybody access into the house.

One of them, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said, “Oga said that we must not allow anybody to enter and we have been told not to answer anybody seeking to have information on the matter.”
