Unidentified gunmen have kidnapped the traditional ruler of Elete town in Kogi, Chief Aminu Aku.

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.

The incident came barely 24 hours after the kidnap of two chieftains of the Kwara chapter of the APC on the Lokoja-Okene road.

Aku, a third class traditional ruler, 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 gunmen had already called to demand for a N10 million ransom.

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