Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has condemned the abduction of the founder and Managing Director, Tito group of companies, Chief Isaac Akinkunmi.
Chief Akinkunmi was kidnapped on Friday in Makurdi, the State capital by yet-to-be-identified gunmen.
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Terver Akase, the Governor described the incident as unfortunate and unacceptable.
Ortom further described Chief Akinkunmi as a peace-loving man who has contributed immensely to the Benue State economy, “particularly in Makurdi where his companies have employed many youths of the state.”
The Governor called on the kidnappers, “to free the founder of Tito group to return to his family unhurt and without conditions.”
