The Ogun State Government-owned security outfit, the So-Safe Corps, arrested a suspected ritualist with a one-year-old child in his possession.
It was gathered that the suspect, Alani Sunday, was arrested during a routine patrol at Tolase village, Odeda Local Government Area of the State.
A statement by the Spokesperson of the So-Safe Corps, Moruf Yusuf, on Friday explained that the suspect was nabbed “while he was attempting to escape with a child of about one and a half year old.”
According to him, Sunday had confessed to the corps that he took the kidnapped child to his accomplices, who are kidnappers and ritualists.
“Upon interrogation by the Ilugun Special Squad of the Corps, Alani Sunday, who claimed to be an indigene of Ogun State, confessed that he was taking the child to his other co-kidnappers/ritualists,” Yusuf explained.
He added that an Automated Teller Machine Card (ATM card) and a handset were found on the suspect.
He stated further that, “the suspect and the items found on him were transferred to the Nigeria Police Force, Odeda Divisional Headquarters for further investigation and likely prosecution.”
