A six- man kidnapping gang which allegedly lured a man, Femi Olatunji,
from his home in the Isheri area of Ogun State to Igbokoda, Ondo
State, where they killed him after collecting a ransom,has been
smashed by Ogun state police command.

The suspects' names were
given as Fadeni Henry, Lebile
Olatunji, Ehuwa Oririe, Olotu
Tosin, Oluwole Ohunayo, and
Peter Omogbemi. i The leader of the gang, 23-
year-old Henry, had
reportedly struck a relationship with the victim
on the social media, and
allegedly lured him to Igbokoda, the gang's base, on Friday, May 12,
2017. The state Commissioner of
Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, said
the wife of the victim had
reported the kidnap of her
husband to the police.

He said the command's
detectives, men of the Anti-
Kidnapping Unit and
operatives of the Federal
Special Anti-Robbery Squad
were directed to rescue the victim. Iliyasu said it was later
discovered that Henry and other members of his gang had lured the
victim, who
was a surveyor, to Igbokoda.

He said operatives of FSARS,
stormed the gang's hideout in Igbokoda, adding that the
hoodlums engaged the police
in a gun battle. He said six members of the
gang were arrested after the
gun battle. He said, "Investigation into
the case revealed that the
suspects collected some
amount of money from the
family of the victim, but
instead of releasing him, they killed him and dumped his corpse in a
river behind the
Holy Trinity African Primary
School, Igbokoda. "The corpse of the victim was
recovered and brought to
Abeokuta with the suspects."

The CP added that the
victim's mobile phone was
recovered from the hoodlums. "Weapons recovered from the
suspects are one pump-action
gun, one cut-to-size locally-
made double-barrelled pistol
and seven live cartridges,"
the police commissioner said. The leader of the kidnap ring,
Henry, said the members of
the gang strangled the victim. The secondary school dropout
said, "He was my friend on a
social media platform and I
invited him to Igbokoda. "On getting to Igbokoda, I
delayed seeing him till
around 9pm. We picked him
and took him to the primary
school. "We tied his hands to his back
after we had collected the
N20,000 we found in his
pocket. We later got his ATM
pin and withdrew another
N30,000 from his account.

"We called his wife and she
also sent money to an
account number that we gave her. The family members kept
sending money, but they did
not know we had killed him." Iliyasu warned criminally-
minded persons to leave
Ogun State, adding that if
they did not, "they will soon
meet their Waterloo."
