Kidnap Member

A church member in Ondo State, Dayo, has been arrested for reportedly planning his pastor’s kidnap.

EKO HOT BLOG reports that a 59-year-old suspected kidnapper confessed that a church member of the Deeper Life Christian Mission simply identified as Dayo, organised his pastor’s abduction in Akure, Ondo State capital.

Pastor Otamayomi Ogedengbe was abducted at Irese in Ifedore council area of the state in May this year.

Ogedengbe spent some days in the kidnappers’ den before he was rescued after his family and church paid ransom to the kidnappers.

The suspect, Ayo Samuel said he was part of the kidnapping gang that abducted the pastor.

Samuel said that Dayo, who’s now at large, informed the gang members that the Pastor had money and has the capacity to pay ransom if abducted.

He said that members of the gang were five in number and that they took their victim to Ekiti State, where they kept him until the ransom demanded from his family was paid.

Samuel said, “I don’t know the name of the street, but I know the house. It belongs to Bunmi’s father.

“It was Samuel that collected the ransom. My duty was to watch over the victim.

“I was given N1m. I bought a motorcycle, but it was stolen after one month. I used the money judiciously.”

The Ondo State police command Spokesman, Funmi Odunlami, promised that other fleeing members of the kidnap gang would soon be arrested.

Odunlami added that the suspect would soon be charged to court after the completion of investigation.
