“It was abandoned in the main town. They have dragged him (Oparinde) into the bush. We are yet to get any help from security agencies. We have called the police and the Amotekun Corps. We want the government to help us rescue him.”
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, when contacted pleaded for some time to get details of the incident.
