Ogun Police Arrests Woman For Kidnapping

A 27-year-old woman, Mariam Ayila was on Tuesday, 20th of December 2022, arrested by men of Ogun State Police Command, for the kidnapping of a 13 years old girl, Sofiat Yusau.

The suspect was arrested following a report lodged at Agbara divisional headquarters by one Ismail Yusau, who reported that he sent his daughter on an errand to Agbara market at about 11:00 am of the day, only to receive a strange call some hours after from an unknown person, who informed him that his daughter has been kidnapped and that if he didn’t send the sum of #250,000 as ransome, he will never set his eyes on the girl again.

Upon the report, the DPO Agbara division, CSP Abiodun Salau, mobilized his Crack Detectives, who embarked on the technical and intelligence-based investigation.

Their efforts yielded positive results when the suspect was traced to her hideout in the Atan Ota area, where she was promptly arrested and the little girl was rescued unhurt.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect had earlier kidnapped a young girl in Itele Ota area on the 19th of December 2022, and ransom was paid to her before she released her victim.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has directed that the suspect be handed over to the Anti kidnapping unit of the state Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and prosecution.
