The man behind the kidnap of the former Minister of Education, Senator Iyabo Anisulowo in Ogun State, is said to be an international criminal based in Dubai.
According to foremost journalist, Seun Oloketuyi, the man was nabbed at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos as he was about to flee to his safe haven in the Unoted Arab Emirate.
Described as notorious kidnapper, the handsome young man, is said to be the leader of a kidnap syndicate that has made millions of naira in the illegal deals.
The 65-year-old former minister was kidnapped while returning from her farm in Sawonjo, Ogun State, and a N200 million ransom was placed on her head. She was rescued six days later while the suspect was arrested while he was about boarding the plane.
While reacting to the arrest, the state Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun said the kidnapper was threatening everyone, including himself on the phone.
“I think it’s a big shame that we found ourselves where we shouldn’t be; young people that should be working, asking for ransom of N200m. They even said because I got involved, they increased it from N100m to N200m
They even threatened me and every other person. They said they will teach me, the IG, the Brigade Commander and all others a lesson. They were abusing everybody on phone, but we thank God the way it was resolved.”
