KidnappersA third class traditional ruler of Elete town in Kogi state, Chief Aminu Aku has been kidnapped by unidentified gunmen.

The News Agency of Nigeria ( NAN) gathered that Aku was kidnapped by a gang of five masked gunmen at about 8:30 pm on Friday in his town located on the Lokoja-Ajaokuta highway.

Aku was said to be returning from a function at Ajaokuta and was just alighting from his car when he was abducted. He was subsequently driven away in a vehicle brought by the abductors.

The state Police Commissioner, Yakubu Usman however said that the abduction of the traditional ruler was yet to be confirmed. [myad]
