BEVERLY HILLS, January 11, (THEWILL) – Former Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Victor Olabintan, has been reportedly kidnapped in Abuja, Nigeria's capital.

Olabintan had declared his intention to run for the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship ticket in the state and has been tipped as a major contender in the state's 2016 Governorship election.

According to Gboyega Ajayi, Secretary of the Olabintan Campaign Organization, Olabintan was kidnapped on his way to Abuja from Akure, the capital of Ondo, barely 48 hours after he declared his intention to run in 2016.

Ajayi revealed that the APC chieftain was kidnapped at Kwali after he was flagged down at a military checkpoint by fake soldiers who turned out to be kidnappers.

According to Ajayi, policemen are currently on the kidnappers' trail.
