Mrs. Yinka Obaleye, the founder of Yinka Oba Foams was abducted in front of her factory, located at Ilo, Ijebu-Jesa road in Osun State, on November 19, 2013, by yet-to-be identified gang of armed men.
After spending about 14 days at the kidnappers’ den, an Ilesa-based frontline industrialist, Dr. (Mrs.) Olayinka Obaleye, popularly known as Yinka Oba, was finally released on December 6, 2013, Friday.
The abductors of the renowned industrialist have allegedly demanded N700million in ransom, however, family sources do not confirm, whether they actually paid it or not, before the victim regained her freedom.
Mrs. Yinka Obaleye was found at Akoko in Ondo state where she was abandoned along with her car in a nearby bush in the town, in the early hours of December 6, 2013, Friday. The woman walked her way to a nearby police station where she reported herself before the Ondo Police Command contacted its counterpart in Osun on the development.
The victim was very weak to narrate her ordeal in the hands of her abductors to the security operatives. She was immediately rushed to an undisclosed hospital in Ilesa, Osun State for medical attention. As at the time she was abducted, the victim had malaria and was said to be a diabetic patient.
