The chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Lagos chapter, Philip Aivoji has been kidnapped.

According to reports gathered by PurpleWorld, Aivoji was abducted on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway while returning from a stakeholders meeting in Oyo state convened by Governors Seyi Makinde and Ademola Adeleke.

On Friday, his abduction was confirmed by State PDP Publicity Secretary, Hon. Hakeem Amode.

Amode issued a statement pleading with government authorities at all levels and security agencies to step up quickly to ensure its chairman’s release.

He said, “It is disheartening that kidnapping has become a prevalent issue in our country, and the government’s inability to address this menace is deeply concerning.

“The abduction of Aivoji underscores the pressing need for decisive actions from the government and stakeholders to eradicate this menace. Aivoji’s abduction was a violent incident, and his current whereabouts or any communication from the abductors remain unknown.

“We implore the governments of Oyo, Ogun, and Lagos States, alongside security agencies, to expedite efforts and secure his safe return to his family and well-wishers.

“We firmly believe that, with increased efforts from security agencies, Aivoji can be rescued from these criminals, and we call on the public to support initiatives aimed at ending this threat to innocent lives.”
