Six gunmen on Monday night seized the mother of the House of Representatives member representing Ijebu North, Ijebu East and Ogun Waterside Federal Constituency, Abiodun Abudu Balogun, from her home.
The federal lawmaker is the deputy chairman of the House of Representatives’ Committee on Internal Security.
The suspected gunmen invaded the Ita-Otu, Ijebu Waterside Local Government Area residence of the woman, Alhaja Obedatu Abudu Balogun, at about 9:30pm on Monday and forcibly took her away to an unknown destination.
This is the latest incident as sundry criminals terrorise the people of the state.
Between Sunday and Monday, robbers killed about 10 persons in different attacks in Ibafo and Abeokuta.
The situation forced banks operating on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to shut shop by 2p.m on Tuesday.
