I Kidnapped My Customer With The Help Of Five Alleged DSS Officers- 42-yr-old Suspect


- Advertisment -

Akeem Ogunnibi, a suspected kidnapper has revealed how he and some alleged operatives of the Department of State Security DSS abducted a businessman at Sabo, Osun state identified as Bala.

Vanguard reports that the Commissioner of Police, Olawale Olokode, had earlier disclosed while parading the suspect that the victim, a bureau de change operator in Osogbo reported that he was whisked away from his office by gun-wielding men on December 30, 2021, around 5:30 pm.

According to Olokode, the victim added that he was driven to a bush path along Ilesa road and the kidnappers demanded ransom before he could be freed. He said the victim reported that he was dispossessed of the N204,000 on him and abandoned at the place.

Upon a detailed investigation, Ogunnibi was arrested. During his interrogation, he disclosed that he was assisted to whisk the businessman away by some alleged operatives of the Department of State Security he was acquainted with.

“Bala, (the victim) is a friend, he underpaid for a gold chain he bought from my brothers and when I confronted him, I was not satisfied with his explanation, hence, I decided to call people I know in the DSS to deal with him.

He paid N680,000 for a chain that is worth N972,000, so, I went to 5 DSS officers and we went to his place picked him and took him to their command in Osogbo.

He was not taken into the command. They collected the money from him. I was in the car when they negotiated, I am not aware of what was demanded, but he paid N210,000 and I was given N15,000.

The DSS operatives were also arrested but I don’t know why they were not paraded but I am sure they were arrested as well”

Ogunnibi said

The Commissioner of Police added that efforts are ongoing to bring the suspect’s cohort to book.
