Gunmen in Army Camouflage kidnap 13-year-old boy, demand N50m ransom in Ogun
Unknown gunmen in Nigerian Army Camouflage kidnapped a 13-year-old boy, Gbolahan Ajibola, in Obada-Odo Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State.
It was gathered that the gunmen invaded Destiny Estate Community Association in Obada-Oko on Saturday around 9:15 pm, started shooting in the air, and whisked away the teenage boy.
The gunmen have however reached out to the family and demanded a sum of N50 million ransom for the release of the kidnapped victim.
The grandmother of the victim, Victoria Felix, told The PUNCH that six gunmen invaded her house on Saturday night.
Narrating the incident, she said the gunmen invaded their house as she and her daughter who is the mother of the victim were entering the house.
Felix, who is a trader in Adigbe, said “Last night, (Saturday) as we got to the entrance of the house, the boy opened the gate for us. Suddenly, he screamed. We thought he was bitten by a Scorpion, but, as I was about to get down from the car to know what happened, I saw four gunmen already stood beside my car while two were at the gate and prevented the boy from closing the gate.
“I asked them what did we do? We gave them our two bags. They collected the bags and also the phones of Gbolahan and his mother.
“As they were taking him away I held one of them by his cloth and insisted they should take me instead of him, they dragged us to the ground and started shooting.”
