Evil uncle kills kidnapped brother’s son after collecting ransom

The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 34-year-old man, Faruq Seidu and three accomplices, who he allegedly contracted to kidnap the seven-year-old son of his brother, Abdulmalik Musa.

The kidnapped boy was killed after a ransom of N300,000 had been collected from the father of the victim.

The deceased was reportedly kidnapped last Wednesday from his parents’ residence at Sabo Ilupeju, Abeokuta, Ogun State, by the syndicate in connivance with Seidu.

The spokesman of the state police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi paraded Seidu and the suspected kidnappers, Hassan Hussein, 30; Habib Nurah, 24; and Muhammed Bello, 42, on Monday at the crime scene, beside the Ogun River, Lafenwa, Abeokuta, where the boy was allegedly strangled and thrown into the river.

The suspects took the police to the crime scene, where the remains of the boy were found floating on the water.

While parading the suspects, Oyeyemi, who described the incident as man’s inhumanity to a fellow man, said investigation revealed that Seidu contracted his three friends to execute the heinous act because of the refusal of his brother, the father of the deceased, Abdul-hammed Musa, to give him money to marry a third wife.

The police spokesman further explained that Seidu and his accomplices had initially demanded N5m ransom, but later reduced it to N300,000 due to the plea by the victim’s father, adding that Seidu killed the boy because he recognized him.

He stated: “This is a breakthrough in respect of an abduction and murder; what happened here is the height of man’s inhumanity to man.

“On December 11, 2019, a case of abduction was reported at the Sabo Division in Ilupeju, Abeokuta.

“About 24 hours later, the kidnappers made a request for N5m and we asked the family to play along with them and later they agreed to take N300,000 and after payment, they still killed the boy and threw his corpse in the river.

“I want to appeal to members of the public to trust nobody, because if a brother could do this to his brother, then who can be trusted?

“But, I want to sound a serious warning to criminals in the state and I will be borrowing from the words of the governor, who said hell fire would be more conducive for criminals than Ogun State.”
