This medium gathered that the 11 market women who went to Oke-Ode market in Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kwara State last Wednesday were waylaid and abducted at Oyi bridge in Yaaru/Olayinka village by abductors along Ajase-ipo/Oke-Ode road between 6 p.m., and 7 p.m., while they were returning from the market.

Sources said that the kidnapped traders were from Offa, Yaaru in Kwara State, and Ikirun in Osun State, respectively.
