In a statement, Rafiu Ajakaye, chief press secretary to the governor, said Abdulrazaq described the incident as “reckless, shocking, and abominable”.
The governor asked security operatives to track the perpetrators, rescue the abducted persons, and bring them to justice.
“We will certainly get the perpetrators and ensure that this is their last crime against humanity,” the governor was quoted as saying.
“My profound condolences go to the people of Koro. Our hearts are broken, and we stand by them at this time and always.”
Recall that on January 29, two traditional rulers were killed by suspected kidnappers in Ekiti state.
