An unspecified number of motorists were reportedly kidnapped along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Friday.
The incident, it was gathered, happened around Dominion University, City of Faith, Km 24, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The development, according to Daily Trust, caused panic on the expressway as several vehicles aborted the trips to their destination and drove in the opposite direction.
An eyewitness told the medium that nobody could ascertain the number of people kidnapped, but three private vehicles were affected.
The affected vehicles include a Jeep, a Toyota Camry Car and a Sedan vehicle
“I can confirm that some motorists have just been kidnapped near Dominion University, Ibadan. Many vehicles had to turn back but the road is free as I am talking to you.
“I saw three vehicles with their doors wide open and not a single person was found inside the three vehicles and there is no trace of where they ran to.
“One of the cars smashed it bonnet on the median while the one behind jammed it from behind but there was no sign of accident. We are sure it was a case of kidnap because the vehicles were empty.
“At first, we taught it was robbery but if it was, we should have seen those that were robbed. There was nobody at the scene when my vehicle got there,” the eyewitness said.
The witness said when they moved away from the scene, they saw some hunters and vigilantes heading towards the place where the incident happened.
When contacted, the Amotekun Commandant in Oyo State, Col. Olayinka Olayanju, said he was not aware of the incident.
