Palpable fear has gripped residents of Agbegise in Ifo local government area of Ogun State following the abduction of domestic staff of Olu of Agbegise Oba Ikudaisi Joseph Olusina

The incident which occurred at about midnight of Saturday saw the palace and personal Hotel of the monarch Oba Olusina being stormed by people suspected to be gunmen claiming to be law enforcement agents.

The fierce looking gunmen according to a source allegedly bumped into the Palace of Oba Olusina, without a search warrant saying they were looking for some miscreants who were lodged in the hotel.

"In the process, they forcefully gained entrance into the palace, destroyed the gate and search everywhere in the palace.

"Not done with that, they also invaded the private hotel owned by the monarch in a gestapo manner, they destroyed the gates and scattered everywhere.

At the end of their search, they abducted the security guard, and his whereabout is yet unknown.

It was gathered that all efforts to trace where the said law enforcement came from were unsuccessful as the police in Ifo and Sango area commands have denied any involvement in the raid.

The royal father, Olu of Agbegise Oba Ikudaisi Joseph Olusina while speaking with our correspondent said the abduction of his staff have left the whole residents of the community in fear as all efforts to identify where the self acclaimed policemen came from remained unknown.

" We have been to the Sango and Ifo police divisions, and also we had contacted the Ogun state command headquarters of Nigeria Police, they all feigned ignorance of the raid, now, the question is who ordered the search and where did they take my staff to.

He called on the Ogun state commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson to urgently wade into the issue and assist in fishing out the whereabouts of his staff.
