''I Kidnapped My Oga's Son Because He Refused To Settle Me"Suspect

A 20-year-old suspect, Blessing Emmanuel, said
on Monday in Lagos that he kidnapped his boss'
son for not settling him after apprenticeship.
Chinobi Sabestine and Emmanuel were arrested
by the police for allegedly abducting a 10-year-
old boy.

It was reported that the suspects were
apprehended in a bank in the Oyingbo area of
the state as they were about withdrawing the
ransom paid by the boy's family into an

Emmanuel, who claimed to be a trader at the
Mandilas Market, Lagos Island, claimed that he
abducted the 10-year-old in the Alafia area of
Orile-Iganmu, on his way to school, as a way of
paying his master back for refusing to settle
him after working for him for four years.
"I started staying with my Oga in 2013.
He took me from my parents to stay with
him so that I could learn how to sell
clothes. In the agreement he had with
my parents before he took me, he
promised to set me up after four years.
"In 2016, he was supposed to help me
start my own business; but instead, he
opened another shop and asked me to
be paying him N20,000 monthly.
"I could not cope because of the
recession in the country, so I asked him
to pay me as agreed, but he refused.
Rather, he sent me back to the village.
"I came back early January and I stayed
in a hotel. It was there that the idea of
kidnapping his son came to me. Last
week Monday, around 7am, I laid in
ambush along the route where his son
normally passed to school in the Alafia
area of Orile.

"The boy emerged around 7.45am. He
came to me when I called him and I took
him away," the suspect said.
The suspect further explained that he kept the
young boy in his hotel room for four days, until
he was arrested on Apapa Road.
"Throughout the four days, the boy
stayed with me in my hotel room at
Oyingbo. I called my Oga on the
telephone the next day to pay N5m into
my account if he hoped to see his son
again. I sent him my account number.
"I was on my way to collect my ATM
card from the bank on Apapa Road when
I was arrested. I never knew that the
police were on my trail," he added.
The Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, while
briefing newsmen on the arrest, said the
suspect, along with one other, kidnapped the
10-year-old boy.
He said after kidnapping their victim, the
suspects demanded N5m as ransom to release
the boy.
