Local vigilantes on Sunday foiled an attempted kidnap of Olori (Queen) Grace Faduyile, wife of the Abodi of Ikale-land, Oba Gabriel Babatunde Faduyile, in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State, SaharaReporters can authoritatively report.

A source that confirmed the incident to a SaharaReporters correspondent in Akure through an emergency phone call said some of the suspected kidnappers waylaid Olori Grace at the front of the palace in Ikoya shortly after a church service.

The source claimed to be part of the rescue team but pleaded anonymity and disclosed that the abductors, numbering about three, were armed to the teeth with dangerous weapons during the unsuccessful operation.

According to the source, the monarch, Oba Gabriel Babatunde Faduyile, was at Okitipupa main town to attend the Armed Forces Remembrance Day when he got wind of the attempted abduction of his wife and immediately gave an order for a rescue mission.

“The Olori (Queen) was heading home after the church service when the kidnappers waylaid and seized her in the presence of her friend who drove the vehicle conveying her into the palace on Sunday," the source disclosed.
