A nonagenarian, Pa Ajagunna Adalumo, has been kidnapped in his home at Oke-Ijebu in Ikole Ekiti, a family member, Bimbo Ajayi, has said.
 

Ajayi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Ikole that the grandpa was adbucted on Wednesday at about 8 p.m. in his home in Ikole Ekiti.
 

The source said Adalumo, 90, is the father of an hotelier in Ikole Ekiti, Oluwole Adalumo.
According to her, a man alighted from a car parked in front of the house and approached the nonagenarian in his sitting room on the pretext that his hotelier son sent him to the old man.
 

``When the supposed visitor came out of the house with the old man, two other men from the car dragged Baba into their car and drove away before people could suspect their mission.
``We raised alarm to prevent the abduction of Baba but they got away and we were unable to trace the vehicle,
’’ she narrated.
 

Also, Mr Festus Kolade, a youth in the area, said that the matter was immediately reported at the Police station and a search for the abducted old man was initiated.
 

Kolade, who claimed to be a family member of the victim, said that the abductors were yet to make any contact with the family.
 

Relatives and friends of the victim were seen in groups in front of his house at Oke-Ijebu on Thursday morning discussing the incident and wondered what would have prompted the hoodlums to abduct the nonagenarian.
 

A police officer at Divisional Police Station in Ikole, who does not want his name published, confirmed the incident and said investigation into the matter had commenced.
 

He assured that the old man would be located and rescued from his abductors.
