The man cuts off the mother's ear as he attempts to steal the baby from Ogun

Police arrested a suspected scammer, Sikiru Adeniran, while allegedly attempting to abduct a child in Idomu-Owo, Ilese, in the northeastern Ijebu local government area of ​​Ogun state.

Punch Metro picked up that Adeniran chased a young girl, Rodiat Iskilu, where a woman, Basirat Bakare, was nursing her twins.

After realizing that Rodiat had escaped, the suspect would descend on Basirat.

While he was reportedly trying to dispossess her of one of the children, he allegedly used a sharp object to cut off her right ear.

The attack weakened Basirat, as one of the twins, Kehinde, fell to the ground.

However, desperate to prevent the alleged kidnapping, Basirat sounded the alarm, which attracted the attention of residents.

He told Punch’s correspondent that as neighbors rushed to his rescue, Adeniran ran into a kitchen and locked the door.

Basirat said: “The incident took place last Wednesday. I was with my children outside the house when one of the children from the neighborhood ran in my direction, shouting for help. She said a man was chasing her.

“I immediately took the girl and my children to our house. But I was about to close the door when the man forced the door. He started fighting to expropriate one of my twins from me; he used his teeth to bite my hands and neck, just to take my baby away.

“I was still arguing with him when he suddenly pulled out a knife and cut off my right ear. I was bleeding and screamed for help. It was my cry that prompted the neighbors to rush to my rescue. When the man saw people coming, he ran into the kitchen and locked the door.

“He broke the burglar-proof bars on the window and was about to escape through it when the neighbors took him. He started begging and requested an account number to make a transfer of N500,000. He said he was interested in Yahoo Yahoo (Internet fraud) and wanted to bribe us with the money to cover the case, but we refused. “

An eyewitness, Tola Alawiye, said he called a vigilante, who contacted the Ilese police station, from where policemen were ordered to arrest Adeniran.

“When I questioned the suspect, he offered us a bribe of N500,000, which we refused,” he said.

Basirat’s husband, Jamiu, said the Ilese division police officer attempted to compromise the case.

He said: “When we got to the station, the policemen asked us what we wanted and told us not to write that Adeniran attempted to kidnap my son in the statement. The DPO asked us to write that he was under the influence of hard drugs.

“Adeniran even threatened to attack us once he regained his freedom and that he could not spend more than a month in prison. Someone who cut off my wife’s ear and slipped her into a coma? “

The couple’s attorney, Kayode Oshiyemi, said the suspect’s car was found a short distance from the community, adding that he wanted justice for the couple.

Oshiyemi said: “I was informed immediately, I called the IPO to warn them that the matter could not be swept under the rug. He told me to tell my clients to go back to the station to write another statement and also bring eyewitnesses to testify what happened.

“The suspect’s family contacted my clients to offer them money after they refused the N500,000 they offered when he was caught. He parked a Toyota Camry about three streets away from the scene of the accident.

Ogun State Police public relations officer Abimbola Oyeyemi confirmed the incident but denied claims that the police wanted to compromise the case.

He said: “This is someone accused of attempted kidnapping who was foiled and in the meantime injured the victim’s mother. The suspect was taken to the station and arrested.

“That boy’s parents came to the station and said he was under the influence of hard drugs and that they warned him to stop taking hard drugs and that the effect of the drugs caused what happened.

The boy’s parents also said they visited the affected family to negotiate with them. But this does not concern us; ours is to investigate the case and charge it in court. The suspect is still with us and will soon be charged in court ”.
