Odugbesan Ayodele Samson, a 29-year-old teacher, was caught for kidnapping.
The man told the police that it was the devil who pushed him to kidnap an eight-year-old student in Ogun state.
The teacher, according to DAILY POST, was arrested by officers from the Ogun State Police Department for kidnapping his former student, who was identified by the police as Rasaka Akiba on November 4, 2020.
Police spokesman Ogun Abimbola Oyemi told DAILY POST on Wednesday that the teacher was arrested after the victim’s mother, Fatimat Akib, filed a complaint with Ajuwon District Police Headquarters.
The mother reported that her son went to school in the Arifanlah district of Akuta, Ogun state, but did not return home until 6:00 pm that day.
She reportedly told police that an unknown person called her and asked her to be willing to pay $ 200,000 if she wanted to see her son alive.
“She further stated that the caller had told her that someone had brought the boy to him and that he would not let him go until the sum was paid,” it became known.
After reporting the incident in Ajuwon, Special Forces soldier Andrew Akinsie immediately ordered his investigators to conduct a technical and intelligence investigation, which Oeyemi said led to the disclosure of the suspect’s hideout.
“In order not to harm the victim, the suspect was lured by the partial payment of the requested ransom; He was later arrested and taken to police investigators, where he held the victim and was rescued unharmed.
“During interrogation, he confessed to the crime, but blamed the devil,” PPRO said.
Ogun Police Commissioner Edward Ajogun then ordered the case to be referred to the state’s CIID Anti-Abduction Department for further investigation and prosecution.
Ajogun urged parents to be aware of how their children move to and from school, so as not to make them easy prey to those he described as wolves in sheep’s clothing.
