Son Sells Off Father to Kidnappers in Osun for N45,000 Only!
A man has reportedly sold off his own father to Kidnappers in Osun state for the paltry sum of forty-five (45, 000) thousand naira only.
This was reported by the Osun State command of the Nigeria Police, who said the man identified as Isah Ibrahim, sold his father Adamu Ibrahim to kidnappers for the sum of N45,000.
While briefing newsmen on the issue, Osun state Police commissioner Mr. Fimihan Adeoye, said Isah had conspired with another person, Jolaanobi Saheed alongside three others to kidnap his father and demand for ransom on the 17th of April, 2018 at Owode-ede in Osun state.
The police commissioner further explained that the Kidnappers killed Adamu after being paid 3 million naira by his family and buried the victim in a shallow grave near a river.
Police afterwards apprehended the prime suspect Saheed and charged him to court; he was however granted bail.
According to the commissioner of police;
“Our detectives swung to action immediately the matter was reported to us, we made a headway and arrested the prime suspect, he eventually jumped bail after releasing him on bail by the court.
Other two accomplices were arrested as we continued to launch a manhunt for the prime suspect; the two suspects we are parading now include the person that dug the shallow grave in which the victim was said to have been buried at a river bank.
Unfortunately, we have not been able to recover the body of the deceased, may be it has been washed away by water, we don’t know.
The suspects promised to give the son of the deceased a sum of five hundred thousand naira initially, but later shortchanged him and gave him 45,000 out of three million naira they collected from the family.”
The police commissioner further bemoaned the fact that the young man apparently sold off his father to die for the paltry sum of N45, 000.
Newsmen had questions for the son of the victim, Isah who told them that he didn’t plan to kill his father; he had wanted to extort him instead.
While he expressed regret and sorrow over the incident, he reiterated that he had been compelled to seek for means of ‘punishing’ his father due to the deceased’s hostile disposition towards him.
