Zubby Michael’s movies taught me kidnapping – Suspect
A kidnap suspect, Ayobamidele Ayodele, has blamed Nollywood actor and director, Zubby Michael’s movies for teaching him the tricks of the job.
The Force Intelligence Response Team led by Tunde Disu arrested Ayodele, 23, for kidnapping a six-year-old boy, Ebube Eze.
The victim’s father had petitioned the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) over the matter.
Vanguard reported that the victim was kidnapped from Remson Group of Schools, located in Ojo Alaba area of Lagos, and was kept hostage for four days until a ransom of N550,000 was paid for his release.
After the suspect’s arrest, he said, “Zubby Michael is my favorite Nollywood actor and he is good at kidnapping roles.
“I decided to try out some of the methods used by Zubby to kidnap children and adults in the movies.
“I started by visiting several schools around Ojo to see the possibility of picking children without anyone noticing,” Ayodele said.
The suspect apologised for the pain he caused the victim and his family.
“I am sorry for causing his family so much pain. I am not a cultist or an armed robber. I do not have a gang.
“I just trained myself by watching Zubby Michael. My parents trained me very well, I was just impatient and greedy,” Ayodele said.
