A four- year- old boy was abducted in Akure, the state capital of Ondo, and his kidnapper, Samuel Lucky Akpan, has admitted that he intended to sell the victim for N200, 000.
Confession by the arrested kidnapper
According to Vanguard Newspaper, the arrested kidnapper told reporters when he was paraded in Akure by members of the state security organization called Amotekun. He further stated that he was desperately in need of the money right away, which lead him to commit the act.
According to the statement gotten from Samuel, the man he wanted to sell the boy too was already waiting for him at the agreed location to bring the little boy before he was caught by Amotekun operatives.
The suspect, who is a friend of the boy’ s family, was paraded before the public together with 17 other suspected criminals who were accused of harassing inhabitants of the state for the past several months.
In the words of the suspect, ” The boy always comes around to my place to play with me from his mother’ s shop. The boy is always around me most of the time. ”
My arrest occurred as I was on my way to sell the boy for two hundred thousand naira to a man who had already agreed on the amount and the location where the child would be brought. After applying the material to the boy’ s skull, I was already in the process of hypnotizing him to cause him to lose his senses for the main time.
When someone places the substance on someone’ s person and says some incantations to them, the person will not be able to speak again and will instead follow him around like a sheep even if you are leading the person to the place of death.
In fact, I hadn’ t even left the place where the boy’ s mother worked so I can proceed to the agreed location with my so- called client before I was apprehended by Amotekun operatives.

He went on to say that a 27- year- old robbery suspect and cultist, Sola Ogunyemi, was apprehended after he had a fight with some people in his neighborhood. Ogunyemi had only been released from prison six months earlier before he was arrested again.
An ‘ Eiye Confraternity leader’ s English revolver pistol was recovered from the suspect, according to the state commander of Amotekun. ” An English revolver pistol which he claimed belonged to the leader of the ‘ Eiye Confraternity’ was recovered from him. ”
