A detailed account of how former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief Oluyemisi Falae, was abducted by Fulani herdsmen on Monday, has been revealed by his personal assistant.

Speaking with newsmen, Falae's Personal Assistant, Capt Moshood Raji (rtd) said he was not aware of any negotiation with the kidnappers, noting that security operatives would be in the best position to confirm or deny if there was any breakdown in negotiation between the kidnappers and the Falae family.

He however said the abduction was carefully planned between the Fulani herdsmen and outside influence as there have been clashes between the Fulani herdsmen and Falae over the destruction of his farm produce.

According to him, four of the suspected kidnappers were armed with AK.47 rifles while the rest had cutlasses. He disclosed that only one of them, who identified Chief Falae was masked while other members were not.

"About a month ago, there was a clash between the herdsmen and Chief when some cows destroyed maize on the farm. I was the one that led the policemen to arrest them. We arrested some and detained them for about four days. Chief Falae said he has no problem with them that they have to sign an undertaking that they will not go there again.

"They signed an agreement that they will not go there again. The Fulani Secretary signed for them. The secretary then said I should caution Oga (Falae) that he should go and fence his farm. He said if he dared harm any cow or kill any of their cows, there would be trouble. He said that before the officer in charge of SARS.

"They have carried out the threat. What they destroyed was about N500,000.00 but N120,000 was paid and the chief distributed the money to all his workers when it was brought to him", he added.

Falae's driver, David Ogunleye who witnessed the invasion narrated the ordeal to newsmen and said he and others were sent to clear the weeds blocking the dam in the farm and on their return, they were attacked by the Fulani herdsmen.

According to him, "As we were coming, we saw seven Fulani herdsmen, they attacked us. They started shooting, I tried to reverse the car but unfortunately my car got stuck. It was there they seized me and told me to take them to where our boss was.

"I told them Oga (Falae) was in the farm but they would not listen. We took them to where Oga was and Chief surfaced and asked what the problem was. From there, they took him away. The manager that was even in the car was trying to escape and they used the cutlass to cut him on the head", he said.

The Police spokesperson in the state, Wole Ogodo, said that the Command was on top of the situation and is making frantic efforts to ensure that the former SGF is rescued.
