Men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Ogun State have arrested 3 suspected kidnappers for allegedly killing an 11-year-old- girl, Aminat Ishola, after kidnapping her from her father’s company.
The suspects are Babatunde Aderonmu, 21, Sina Damilare, 40, and Taofeek Kola, 50 and they’ve all been arrested.
The mastermind behind the kidnap was the girl’s father’s former employee Babatunde Aderonmu. They reportedly kidnapped the girl at an area of Sango in Ado-Odo/Ota on May 21 then moved her to Osun Jegede, Ogbere area of Ibadan in Oyo State, where she was held.
One Lasisi Olalekan reported the case of the missing girl to the police.
The Police said they gathered that the suspects had contacted the parents of the girl and had demanded N2 million ransom before they could release the girl. “They agreed on N300,000, following the intervention of the police. The suspect sent the account number of a prophetess, who they claimed had prayed for them before, to the parents and that was how Aderonmu was apprehended.
He said the girl died after one of the suspects, Taofeek Kola, who claimed to be an alfa, gave her a powdery substance in order to hypnotise her.
Adejobi said: “After the girl had died, they packed her corpse into a sack and dumped the sack opposite Ogbere Police Station in Ibadan.
“The following day, a woman whose shop is close to the police station, noticed the sack and called the attention of the police.
The DPO ordered the opening of the sack and the corpse was discovered. It has been taken to a morgue.
“We have carried out an autopsy on the girl and we are awaiting the result.
