Commenting on the development, the director of publicity, research, and strategy of the APC in Osun, Barrister Kunle Oyatomi said he does not have details about the incident.

He, however, said that that “if it is true, that indicates that a worrisome dimension has been introduced into pre-election politics. But, we are pleading with his abductors to release him unconditionally.”
