Report emanating from the Osun State University has it that the wife of Chairman, Osun State University chapter of Academic Staff Union of Universities, Mrs. Funmilayo Abiona has been kidnapped by Gunmen suspected to be cultists. learnt that Abiona was abducted in Osogbo on Friday night after she has closed from her shop around Oke Bale area of Osogbo and was heading home to meet her husband, Dr. Oluseye Abiona, when the hoodlums who had been on her trail caught up with her and forcefully took her away after they had engaged her in hot argument.

The hoodlums, according to some residents of the area were dressed in red shirts and this made some to believe that the abductors might be members of a cult group from the university.

After crossing the woman’s car, the hoodlums were said to have come down and uttered some words which angered the woman and she flared up.

Mrs. Abiona was said to have struggled with her captors who eventually overpowered her and forced her into a red car which they used for the operation.

The hoodlums, out of anger, were said to have smashed the rear screen of the Lexus car but they left the car and the children and drove away their target.

Efforts to speak with the ASUU chairman were unsuccessful. However, source close to him said that the case had been reported to the police.
