Son Kidnaps Own Father, Collects N1 Million Ransom

What a child! A man who worked with others to kidnap his father has been arrested. The son was paraded by Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude, with others on Wednesday.

Mr Odude said that the kidnapping of the suspect’s father took place at Igboora in Ibarapa Central Local Government Area on May 17 at about 6 p.m.

“The suspect said he got a share of less than N1 million in the ransom collected although he confessed that his father never offended him,” the Police boss said.

He said that the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigation was completed.

Similarly, six suspects said to be involved in the kidnapping of popular Ibadan-based oil magnate and Chief Executive Officer of Bovas Oil and Gas Limited were also paraded.

Items recovered from the suspects included firearms, nine vehicles, one motorcycle, N1.2 million, musical instruments, knife and phones.

Investigations are ongoing.
