The abducted student of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso in Oyo State, Rachael Opadele; a Hotelier, Olugbenga Owolabi; and one other have been killed by their abductors.

Opadele was working with Owolabi due to the ongoing nationwide strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

It was gathered on Wednesday that the victims were reportedly shot dead on Tuesday evening by the kidnappers after collecting N5 million as ransom.

The source said that the abductees and motorcycle operator were shot dead in anger, while the ransom carrier is currently receiving medical attention in an undisclosed hospital.

The ransom was taken to the bush on Ogbomoso-Ilorin Expressway around Igbon area.

The source said that the kidnappers became angry when they noticed the presence of soldiers at the LAUTECH area.

The soldiers had stormed Ogbomoso on Tuesday in order to beef up security as a result of the increasing rate of kidnapping in the area.
