Gunmen on Wednesday kidnapped Muhammed Jubril at the settlement of Fulani herdsmen in Ila local government area of Osun State.

It was gathered that the gunmen, who were Fulani Bororo numbering about eight, attacked the Ago Igbira settlement in Ila-Orangun around 12am on Wednesday.

The gunmen shot sporadically into the air to scare the settlers who were predominantly Fulani herdsmen.

The Serikin Fulani of the settlement, Muhammed Kajibo, disclosed that the sound of the gun alerted close-by settlements and quickly called security operatives.
