The Nation reports that Ogunbadejo had abducted the boy identified as Attairu Amisu, in the premises of the school, Abdul Rahman Academy, in the Obalende Ijebu-Ode of the state.

It was gathered that the suspect had gone to the school pretending to be a relative sent by his parents to pick him up.

Few minutes after the school authorities handed over the boy to the purported relative, it was learned that the mother of the child arrived to pick him up only to be told that her relation had earlier come for him.

Having successfully kidnapped the child, Ogunbadejo and his gang reportedly contacted the family demanding a ransom of N5 million.
