Armed men have abducted three workers of the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Owo in Ondo State, SaharaReporters has just learnt.


The health workers were kidnapped on Tuesday along Emure-Ile/Owo road on their way to work at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) in Owo, a 45-minute drive from Akure, the Ondo State capital.


A medical doctor, nurse and records officer were kidnapped.


Our correspodent gathered that one of the kidnapped victims has been identified as Jospehine Fanikasi, a records officer at FMC.


A source, who confirmed the news to SaharaReporter on Wednesday, said the medical workers were abducted on a "bad portion" of Owo road.


The source, who preferred not to be named, explained that the gunmen double-crossed the vehicle that was coveying the health workers. The hoodlums later marched the three victims into a waiting vehicle, before they drove into the bush.

A church member of one of the victims also confirmed the incident via phone call, stating that they had gone spiritual on the matter.


She said the abductors have contacted the family of the victims and are demanding N50million for their release.


"They have contacted their families and they were told to raise the sum of N50million to effect their release. Even in the church, we have resorted to fasting and prayer for God to touch the hearts of the kidnappers and let them release their victims," she said
