How my security aides chased kidnappers who attacked me – Akeredolu

The governor of Ondo state, Rotimi Akeredolu has narrated how his security aides repelled attacks from suspected kidnappers who targeted his convoy on the Akure-Ibadan road.

Akeredolu, while speaking on a Live TV programme, said the suspects ran into the bush when security men attached to him opened fire on them, after they laid siege on his convoy.

“I have encountered them (kidnappers) before so security issue is not limited to the masses alone.”

“My convoy was targeted but my security people shot into the air to scare them away. They fled into the bush on Akure-Ibadan road.

We, as governors, will do something about the issue. We are discussing with the federal government. It is real that travellers are not safe on the road.

It looks like it’s only the masses that are affected as the big men are enjoying themselves as they drive in convoy. Is that so?”

He however did not state the exact date the incident happened.

Asked if he is afraid of being kidnapped, the governor said he has gone beyond that stage and no one can kidnap him:

“Nobody can kidnap me, I have passed that stage.”

Several kidnappings have been recorded on that Ibadan-Akure Express Road, despite the heavy presence of security personnel on the highway.
