The monarch, Oba Joel Daodu, was kidnapped on Easter Saturday alongside one of his prominent chiefs.
Oba Joel Daodu, the Oniyani of Iyani-Akoko in Ondo State was reportedly abducted alongside one of his prominent chiefs, John Afelumo, near Oba-Akoko, on the Owo-Ikare Road.
A prominent traditional ruler and the Akala of Ikaram-Akoko, Oba Andrew Momodu, condemned Daodu's kidnapping, saying it is an abomination to abduct a monarch, who he said are custodians of traditions and representatives of the Creator of the universe.
Oba Momodu urged the abductors to release him with his chief without any condition.
The Olisupare of Supare-Akoko, Oba Adejoro Omosogbon, also called for military deployment to Owo-Ikare Road.
According to him, the area has become a haven for kidnappers.
