The abducted Commissioner for Agriculture in Ekiti State, Chief Olabode Folorunso, by unknown gunmen last week has regained freedom from his abductors.
The State Commissioner for Information and Values Orientation, MR Muyiwa Olumilua who confirmed this in a statement in Ado-Ekiti, said he was released unhurt and had since been reunited with his families.
The statement indicates that the Government is grateful to members of the public for their concern during the period of his incarceration.
It also appreciates the efforts of the security Agencies in securing the Commissioner’s release as well as ensuring the security of lives and properties on the highways.
The statement however, expresses sympathy to the family of the late Councillor, Mr Olatunji Omotosho, who was killed by the gunmen during the abduction on April 26, 2020 and urges the people of the state to remain vigilant and report any suspicious movement and/activities to the law enforcement Agencies.
