Kidnap

The reports reveal that the victim identified as Miss Moyinoluwa Abdulkareem, was allegedly kidnapped by a motorcyclist, in Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State on Friday, July 1, 2016.

Miss Abdulkareem was later found on Sunday evening, July 3, 2016, along Idanre road in Akure after she managed to escape from the den of her kidnappers.

A student of Prospect High School, Owo, Miss Abdulkareem was allegedly abducted by an okada rider whose bike she had boarded to carry out a transaction at one of the new generation banks within the area, after writing her National Examination Council (NECO) examination.

The Okada rider is reported to have diverted into the bush pretending to be avoiding a police check point along their route.

Speaking with The Nation, Miss Abdulkareem revealed that her escape had been by divine intervention which made her courageous and allowed her to escape her abductors after they forgot to lock the door of the place where she was kept amongst other victims.

She went on to reveal that the okada rider had handed her over to his collaborators who were waiting in a car after he had been given an envelope.

Miss Abdulkareem disclosed that she had met two pregnant women and two young boys she suspects to have also been victims, after which her abductors had driven along Akure road before diverting to Ilu Abo.

They reportedly spent 30 minutes on the ride before arriving at an isolated building where she was kept with other victims and also managed to escaped via unknown bush parts which led her to Idanre road in Akure.

Miss Abdulkareem has reportedly been reunited with her family and friends, hale and hearty.

The police spokesman, Mr Femi Joseph confirmed the issues while disclosing that the command has now commenced further investigation into the matter.

He added that a special squad is presently on the trail of the suspects, while advising the general public to be security conscious at all times, but especially before boarding a commercial vehicle or motocycle.
