How a Son Abducted His Father and Gets N1m Ransome


The Oyo State Police Command have paraded a 20-year-old Ibrahim Babatunde for the kidnapping of his dad.

Babatunde said he was the architect of the crime and that he did it with three different assistants. Different individuals from the gang who were Babuga Salihu, 20, Aura Sands, 20 and Amuda Yusufu, 19.

The state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude, said Aliyu Babatunde was snatched in Igboora and burned through three days in the sanctum of his abductors. He included that he was discharged after the family paid N1 m recover.

The 20-year-old said he was lured into kidnapping after his dad chose not to see to the welfare of his youngsters.

“My father married many wives and he doesn’t care for us. We are left to fend for ourselves. So, I think the only way to get money out of him is to organise his abduction and force him to part with the money. We collected N1m as ransom from our family.”

While revealing how the crime was planned and executed, Babatunde said he invited his friends after he was sure that the plan would succeed. 

Odude stated, "The casualty was in the long run assumed to an obscure position where he was kept for some days by his abductors who later requested payoff as a condition for his discharge.

Initial arrest of one of the suspects by combined efforts of the local vigilante group , the police and further discreet investigation carried out by operatives of the Special Squad led to subsequent arrest of the kingpin and other members of the gang at their various hideouts in the state.
