The abduction of Aderoju is coming hot on the heels of the killing of Mr Sherifat Adisa, a petroleum dealer who owns Subawah petroleum and two children just two days ago, as well as the kidnap of a medical doctor in Ibarapa North Local Government Area.

No fewer than five people have been kidnapped in the state in the last three weeks.

It has also been gathered that out of the five people kidnapped in the last three weeks, only one of them, Mrs Jimoke Oludele-Babalola has been released. 

All these occurrences seem to be pointing to a very ugly trend of regular insecurity in the Western region of the country, carried out by armed bandits and the likes, and the people are right to be alarmed.
