Son Kidnaps His Father, Collects N1 million Ransom

For the love of money.... .

A young man identified as Ibrahim Babatunde, 20, has been arrested by police in Oyo State for the abduction of his father.

The police also arrested three accomplices who allegedly participated in the kidnapping in Igboora area of the state. They are Babuga Salihu, 20, Aura Sands, 20 and Amuda Yusufu, 19, the Punch reports

The state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude, said Ibrahim’s father, Aliyu Babatunde, spent three days in the den of his abductors.

“The victim was eventually taken to an unknown place where he was kept for some days by his abductors who later demanded ransom as a condition for his release. Initial arrest of one of the
suspects by combined efforts of the local vigilante group , the police and further discreet investigation carried out by operatives of the Special Squad led to subsequent arrest of the kingpin and other members of the gang at their various hideouts in the state,” Odude said.

He was released after the family paid N1m ransom.

Ibrahim however said he resorted to kidnapping his father for failing to meet his responsibilities to his children.

“My father married many wives and he doesn’t care for us. We are left to fend for ourselves.  So, I think the only way to get money out of him is to organise his abduction and force him to part with the money. We collected N1m as ransom from our family,” he said.

Ibrahim explained that he invited his friends after he was sure that the plan would succeed.

He is expected to appear in court soon
