Ijebu-Ode based business magnate and civil engineering contractor, Otunba Olurotimi Ajayi-Smith is yet to regain freedom after he was kidnapped one month around Ijebu-Ode township in Ogun state.
His kidnappers were said to have contacted the family demanding a ransom of N90million if they ever wish to see the business magnate again, a family source disclosed to Western Post.
The ugly incident was said to have been reported at Igbeba police station, Ijebu-Ode but one month after, Ajayi-Smith is still languishing in the den of the kidnappers.
The family is said to be in great distress since the disappearance of their breadwinner and have been calling on the police to double up their efforts to free the civil engineering contractor from the den of the kidnappers.
The Police Public Relations Officer of Ogun State police command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi while speaking over this incident said that the police has not abandoned the case but has been working round the clock to free the business magnate.
Speaking with our correspondent over the phone, Oyeyemi said that the police had even gone as far as Edo and Delta States in the course of investigating this kidnap case, saying that the police would not relent in ensuring that the civil engineer regains his freedom very soon.
