Dr. Ayodele Ajayi, his wife, and their driver were taken hostage by gunmen who are believed to be kidnappers. He was the former provost of the Federal College of Education (FCE), Osiele, Abeokuta.
On Tuesday, July 25, 2023, at around 7.17 p.m., the event reportedly took place in the Odeda Local Government of Ogun State’s Ikija village, Olodo region, on the Abeokuta-Ibadan road.

According to the source, the shooters attacked their victims after emerging from the bush.
