 Amotekun detains teenager for kidnapping 4-year-old child

A 17-year old boy, Samuel Lucky Akpan, who allegedly kidnapped a four-year-old child for the purpose of selling him for N200,000 has been arrested by men of the Ondo State Security Network codenamed Amotekun Corps.

Akpan was said to have abducted the child at Alagbaka area of Akure, the Ondo State capital.

He reportedly hypnotised the child by placing charms on his head.

It was while he was taking the child to meet the buyer that he was apprehended.

Speaking to newsmen while he was being paraded, Akpan said he easily kidnapped the child because he is a friend to the family.

He said: “The boy always come to play with me from his mother’s shop. I was already on my way to sell the boy for two hundred thousand naira, when I was arrested by some group of people.

” The man I wanted to sell the child to was already waiting for me as I placed a certain kind of leave on the boy’s head.

“If somebody places that leave together with some incantations on anyone, the person will not be able to say anything again. I haven’t gone far from the shop of the boy’s mother when I was nabbed by men of the Amotekun Corps.”

Commander of Ondo Amotekun Corps, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, said the suspect would soon be charged to court.

He said the toddler has been reunited with his family.
