Even teenagers are been coopted into this ‘kidnapping’ business!

A teenager, Racheal John, and Joy Atunramu, 9, have been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly kidnapping their neighbour’s nine-month-old baby.

The suspects were arrested on Wednesday by detectives attached to the Ilese Police Division, Ijebu Ode.

The baby was said to have been taken from the mother’s shop at the Old Toll gate area of the town by Atunramu, allegedly acting on the instruction of John.

The state police spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, said the police swung into action after the mother of the baby rushed to the police station to make a complaint about the incident.

Adejobi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, said, John was later arrested with the baby at the Ogbere area of Ijebu.

He said, “Investigation revealed that the suspect had a conflict with the mother of the baby before the baby was stolen.

“She vowed via a written letter to deal with the mother of the baby.

“The mother did not know who actually stole the baby, but neighbours and some eyewitnesses, who saw the suspect with the baby ─ who was stolen by Atunramu on the instruction of the first suspect, John ─ intimated the mother and the police detectives before the arrest of the suspects.

“It was also gathered that the suspect (John) allegedly demanded the sum of N2m as ransom before she would release the baby.” – PUNCH


Oluwabunmi Ajelero

Thank God…the 3 year old female child, Oluwabunmi Ajelero, that was apparently kidnapped on Sunday on the premises of Surulere Baptist Church in Ojuelegba, Lagos, was rescued in another church in Abeokuta, Ogun State. The police spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, on Tuesday said the victim attracted attention after she started crying in a church in the Oke Sokori area of Abeokuta on Sunday evening.

This kidnap happened not too long after the ‘Orekoya Boys’ were kidnapped too.

The fools asked for a ransom of about N300,000 but it was never paid and instead, the girl was seen with a note which had the Lagos pastor’s telephone number, so that it would be easy to locate her parents after the criminals’ transaction with her family.

I want to take time to appreciate all our prayer warriors, both man and woman, for taking time out to pray against the works of the enemy. Even if you didn’t pray for the safety of these kids, not to worry, this kind of ‘evil’ will never visit you and yours in Jesus name.
