The Benin-Owo Road and the Ipele-Ido Ani Expressway have become notorious in recent times, as kidnappers have continued to have a field day along the road.

Recently, the Medical Director of the Ondo State General Hospital, Dr Olufemi Adeogun, and two other staffers of the hospital were kidnapped by some hoodlums on the Ipele-Ido Ani Expressway but they were released after four days in captivity.

But it was gathered that the suspects were apprehended after the abduction of a businessman, Mr Kunle Agbayewa, at a popular sawmill in Ido Ani.
