Abducted Lagos councillorship candidate’s daughter regains freedom

Bukola, daughter of Mr Bode Adeosun, All Progressives Congress (APC) councillorship candidate in Ward C1B of Odi-Olowo/Ojuwoye Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Lagos, has regained freedom, three days after she was kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

The 19-year-old, who was kidnapped on Tuesday evening, was dumped by her abductors around 12:30am Friday morning in Damegoro Street in Mushin.

She is said to be unconscious after her release. It was learnt that she was found blindfolded, with her hands and legs tied by rope.Her release came amid speculation that the father had transmitted a letter of withdrawal from the councillorship race to the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC), a condition given by the kidnappers to release the kidnappers.

Adeosun, in a telephone call with our reporter at 2:06am, confirmed the development, saying she is presently receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital.
