The newly appointed Caretaker Committee Vice-Chairman for Remo North Local Government has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.
It was gathered that Soniyi was kidnapped on Friday, along Fidiwo-Ipara road, by unknown gunmen, who whisked him away.
This is coming barely 24 hours after the launch of Operation Amotekun.
It was reported that the vehicle of the politician, which was earlier taken away by the abductors, was later found at Fidiwo, in Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state.
It was learned that the abductors are demanding a ransom of N50million to free the council boss, who belongs to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
