A suspected ritualist has been arrested after abducting a child.
The suspect was arrested by the Special Squad of the Ogun State-owned security outfit, the So-Safe Corps, on Wednesday.
The suspect, Alani Sunday, was arrested during a routine patrol at Tolase village, Odeda Local Government Area of the State.
Spokesperson of the So-Safe Corps, Moruf Yusuf, told DAILY POST on Friday that the man was nabbed “while he was attempting to escape with a child of about one and a half year old.”
According to him, Sunday had confessed to the Corps that he was taking the kidnapped child to his accomplices.
“Upon interrogation by the Ilugun Special Squad of the Corps, Alani Sunday, who claimed to be an indigene of Ogun State, confessed that he was taking the child to his other co-kidnappers/ritualists,” Yusuf explained.
He added that an Automated Teller Machine Card (ATM card) and a handset were found on the suspect.
He stated further that, “the suspect and the items found on him were transferred to the Nigeria Police Force, Odeda Divisional Headquarters for further investigation and likely prosecution.”
