Nursing Mother And Five Others Arrested For Specializing In Abduction Of Toddlers In Ondo State
A Nigerian nursing mother and five other young men have reportedly been apprehended by the Department of State Service (DSS) over accusations of abducting toddlers in Ondo State in Nigeria.
The Director of DSS in Ondo State, Jonathan Kure whiles parading the six suspects at the headquarters of the DSS on Monday 4th April 2022 stated that the suspected kidnap syndicates have been abducting toddlers between the ages of two and four.
He said that following the directive of the Nigerian President, H.E Buhari, and the Director-General and that of the Ondo State Government, the security agency conducted investigations to track down the kidnappers to bring them to book.
Upon their thorough investigations, the nursing mother was the one keeping the weapons for the other syndicates.
“They (the suspects) have tormented so many families, especially within Akure, following the directive of President Buhari and support of our DG, we were able to launch a crackdown,” he said.
“You can see that they are young men, what is even more touching is that one of their members is a nursing mother and wife of one of the kidnappers, she also plays a dual role of being in charge of the armory of the group,” he added.
He also revealed that the agency was able to retrieve some laptops, an undisclosed amount of money and locally-made guns. He also said that further investigations will be carried out and the suspects will be arraigned before the court.
Speaking on the development, the state Deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, who was present at the DSS office during the parade of the suspects, said the government was committed to adequately securing the lives and properties of residents of the state.
Aiyedatiwa urged landlords to always do proper profiling of their tenants and know the kind of work they do before letting out their houses.
