The Ogun State Police Command has apprehended four men for reportedly kidnapping a 13-year-old girl in Onipanu, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state.
The suspects were identified as; 21-year-old John Nelson, 29-year-old Adeleke Ayotunde, 20-year-old Adekunle Basit and 20 years old Abey Fagbemi.
Their arrest followed a complaint lodged by one Adejunwon Odunowo at Onipanu Police Station.
Odunowo on getting to the Police station told the Police that his daughter, Susan Odunowo, was sent on an errand by her mum at about 6:30 pm on Thursday, but she did not return and that he received an anonymous phone call, demanding for a ransom of N500,000.
According to the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the DPO of Onipanu, CSP Bamidele Job, wasted no time as he detailed his crack detectives to go after those behind the kidnapping.
According to him: “It was then discovered that the victim was being kept in a room, owned by Adekunle Basit. Detectives swiftly moved in there, and rescued the victim unhurt.”
Abbey Fagbemi fled when he heard the arrest of his accomplices, but was later arrested at about 7:30 am yesterday.
Oyeyemi said that the “victim has since been reunited with her family.”
The suspects will be charged to court at the conclusion of investigation.
