It was gathered that the kidnappers later took Dayo away to an unknown destination.
A source reportedly said, ”the villagers were alerted by the staff who survived the ordeal. Local hunters were mobilised by the Oniroko of Iroko.
“The hunters were said to have located the car of the abductors along the road to Iware village near Iroko.
