The All Progressives Congress (APC) aspirant in the Ondo state 2016 Governorship election, Victor Olabintan, has been reportedly kidnapped in Abuja.
A statement issued by the Secretary of the Olabintan Campaign Organization, Gboyega Ajayi, said that Olabintan was kidnapped on his way to Abuja from Akure, the capital of Ondo.
The statement said the APC chieftain, who is also a former Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly, was kidnapped at Kwali after he was flagged down at a military checkpoint by fake soldiers who turned out to be kidnappers.
According to Ajayi, police personnel in Abuja are currently on the kidnappers’ trail.
His abduction is coming barely 48 hours after he indicated his interest to run for governorship in the state.
