Gunmen have kidnapped a local government supervisor in Ekiti State.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state Sunday Abutu confirmed the kidnap.

According to him the Supervisor of Ekiti West Local Government was kidnapped Thursday evening while driving towards a town within the local government (Erijiyan Ekiti).

His car was reportedly left beside the road as he was whisked away by the abductors.
