A prominent businesswoman in Osun State, the Managing Director of Yinka Oba Foam, Mrs Olayinka Obaleye was kidnapped in Ilesa on Tuesday evening.
The incident occurred as Mrs Obaleye was returning from her factory located on Ijebu-Jesa Road. The driver was shot dead by the kidnappers.
Mrs Obaleye’s company has been operating since 1979. As of the time of filing this report, Street Journal was told that no ransom had been demanded yet.
The kidnapping trend seems to be gradually gaining more ground in the South West. Sometime back, the wife of General Oluwole Rotimi was kidnapped as she was leaving her office.
