His family and the paper’s publisher, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, have raised the alarm.

They said despite their fervent efforts, there had been no word on Olatunji.

According a statement by the publisher, Olatunji was whisked away from his home in the Iyana Odo area of Abule Egba, Lagos State, when a group of armed individuals, two of them in camouflage, stormed their house, collected his phone and forcibly took him away without explanation.

They left without giving any information to his family members.
