The victim was reportedly marched into the thick forest by the heavily armed kidnappers.
Secretary to the Regent of Ifon, Olaniyi Eni Olotu confirmed the abduction of the Igbo leader.
Mr. Olotu said the kidnappers took the Igbo Chief through the bush path into the forest.
Spokesperson of the state police command, Funmi Odunlami also confirmed the abduction of the businessman and Igbo leader.
She added that the police have mobilized operatives to search for the victim.
