Something about increasing number of missing persons in Ibadan
Around this time last year – or thereabout, Ibadan got global attention when news of the kidnappers’ den at Soka area in Ibadan. After the media frenzy, there was reduction in thee number of kidnappings. But it appears the kidnappers are at work again cos more people are reportedly getting missing in various parts of the city.
If you watch BCOS very frequently, especially in the evening, you will confirm this assertion. There are also numerous stories on the notorious activities of Nissan Micra taxi drivers. Someone very close to me had a serious experience with them.
There appears to be more Soka these days and while we can only enjoin security operatives to rid the city of the criminals, in the short term we can only take precautionary measures.
People are getting missing a lot in Ibadan these days and if you are new in town, pleasure be mindful of night journeys, Micra drivers and deserted routes.
