In Ogun: Fleeing gunmen, who killed mother, abducted daughter, arrested

Two members of a six-man kidnapping gang, who abducted a 25-year-old woman, Mariam Fagbohun, and killed her 50-year-old mother, Annah Fagbohun, in Ijoun, Yewa-North Local Government Area of Ogun State, have been arrested.

The abductors were said to have shot at the mother while she was taking her daughter away and she died on the spot.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, stated this in a statement on Wednesday.

Oyeyemi said Mariam, who runs a provision store and a pub, was abducted by the six-man gang on August 20, 2020, when she closed and was going home.
The PPRO said the victim, while being taken away, raised the alarm, which attracted the people around, including her mother.

The PPRO added that the suspects confessed to the crime during interrogation, claiming to have been contracted by a man, simply known as Ade, and his friend, known as Doctor, who live in the same neighbourhood with the victim.

According Oyeyemi, the suspects claimed that they were contracted to swindle the victim out of a huge sum of money.

He said items recovered from them were three single-barrelled guns, 12 live cartridges and face masks.

Oyeyemi said the CP had ordered a massive manhunt for the fleeing members of the gang.
He added that Ajogun also ordered that the suspects in custody be arraigned. Punch
