After spending three days in captivity, former Ondo State House of Assembly Speaker and Ondo APC governorship candidate hopeful, Victor Olabimtan, has narrated what he went through in the hands of his abductors.
Olabimtan, who was abducted tthree days after he declared interest to contest Ondo APC governorship primaries, said he was forced to trek barefooted in the bush by his abductors.
Reliving his experience to reporters at his home in Akure, the Ondo State capital, the All Progressives Congress (APC) aspirant said he and other victims were put inside a pit, where they spent the night.
Olabimtan was abducted last Sunday at Kwali on his way to Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The APC chieftain confirmed that ransom was paid, but he didn’t give the exact amount.
The victim, who was received by his supporters, amid jubilation, said: “It was exactly 6:35pm on January 10, when we got to a spot at Kwali and I heard loud gunshots. I asked my driver what was happening.
