Ogun Police Arrest Four ‘Yahoo Boys’ For Kidnapping Colleague

The four suspects were arrested on Monday, 26th December 2022.

Spokesman of the command, Abimbola Oyeyemi disclosed this in a statement issued on Thursday.

The statement gave the names of the suspects as Agbe Simeon ‘m’,  Messiah Nicky ‘f’, Oladapo Dolapo ‘m’, and Yetunde Shonola ‘f’.

Oyeyemi disclosed that the suspects were arrested at Orile imo village in Obafemi Owode local government area of Ogun state, following information received by the Police at Owode Egba divisional headquarters, that one Haruna Usman, who had been abducted since Thursday, 22nd of December 2022, is being held hostage somewhere in Orile Imo.

“Upon the information, the DPO  Owode Egba division, CSP Popoola Olasunkanmi quickly mobilized his men and stormed the area, where four of the abductors were apprehended while two others escaped,” the statement reads.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the victim and the suspects belong to an internet fraudster syndicate and that they recently swindled somebody whose identity is not yet known of the sum of twenty-six million, four hundred and thirty-seven thousand, nine hundred and fifty naira (#26,437,950), but the victim only gave the sum of #2,200 to his other colleagues, claiming that the money has not been paid completely by the client.

“This infuriated colleagues who then lured him to an herbalist home at Orile Imo and held him hostage there since Thursday, 22nd of December 2022, with a threat to kill him there if he refused to give them thier complete share.

“But while they were there, information got to the police who moved in, rescued the victim, and apprehended four (4) amongst the abductors, while others escaped.

“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole has directed the suspects be transferred to the Anti kidnapping section of the State criminal investigation department for further investigation and possible prosecution.”
