He was said to have  been abducted by four gunmen on his way home at about 11:00pm , as he was about  entering Ona Iwa Mimo Street, Ori Oke before Egbe Bridge at Ejigbo, where his house is located.

He was with his driver, Biodun Olayiwola, in his black Ford Everest Jeep with special registration number KOK, without  any police orderly, as the chairman was never known to use police escorts since assumption of office.

The gunmen were said to have released several gun shots into the air to scare away residents before catching up with Bamigbetan and his driver whose four-wheel drive got stuck  in  the mud  in a bid to escape from the assailants.

Bamigbetan, was later whisked  away by the gunmen.

Vanguard gathered that the matter had since been reported at the Ejigbo Divisional Police station.

In his own account, Bamigbetan’s driver, Olayiwola, who escaped with minor bruises told Vanguard that  he and his boss were attacked by three armed men while another member of the gang was waiting in the assailants car in an attack that barely lasted three minutes.
