Ogun Businessman Disappears As Police Begins Manhunt Of Suspect
THE Ogun State Police Command is on the trail of a man suspected to have “harmed” an Abeokuta based business man, Mr. Yemi Kehinde and stole his goods worth N1.6 million. The victim, a successful plank seller, until his disappearance was the Vice-Chairman of the Lanfenwa, Abeokuta branch of the Planks Sellers Association.
He was said to have on Thursday travelled to Owa-Oni in Ondo State to buy planks worth N1.6 million. The Association Chairman, Mr. Musulimi Abayomi told journalists in Abeokuta yesterday that after purchasing the planks, Kehinde hired the services of a haulage company to convey the goods to Abeokuta but as at yesterday afternoon, the whereabouts of the driver, simply referred to as Sesan or the victim is yet to be known.
The vehicle used to convey the planks have however been traced to the Haulage company’s premises at Ibafo, few kilometres from Abeokuta without the goods.
Abayomi disclosed, “When he (victim) left Ondo with the driver, he contacted us on his phone but about two hours later we lost contact with him despite all efforts to speak to him through his cell phone.”
