Osun NSCDC arraigns plumber for stealing water taps 



On hearing the voice(s) of their loved ones, Pastor Olugbenga Olawore’s family swung into ‘later to regret’ action by informing the Police and Amotekun about the kidnapped victims, hence the police officers and Amotekun searching for their hideout in the forest.


On Saturday morning after the police officers and Amotekun had entered the bush in search of the kidnapped victims, they shot in the air to get the location of the kidnapers as they believe that will send a signal or frighten them.


On hearing the gunshot, this unsettled the kidnappers and gave way for two(2) of the kidnapped victims to escape. This got the kidnappers furious and they decided to kill two(2) persons immediately to send a strong reprimand to others who might want to follow suit.


On hearing the news of the additional two(2) people that were killed, families, friends and colleagues started gathering money to pay the ransom for their loved ones. After they had earlier rejected #5million naira for two students among the kidnapped, they later agreed to accept #1.5million naira per person. An agreement was also reached on the time and venue, which was 9:30pm at Lanlate junction.
