After Eating Dinner At Their Residence, Gunmen Kidnap Two Islamic Clerics

 

Two Islamic clerics were kidnapped by gunmen who stopped by their home in Ayetoro, Ogun State’s Yewa-North Local Government Area, to dine.

 

Touchaheart Nigeria reports that AbdulJelil Hussein and Ilyas Jamiu were kidnapped on Saturday, December 18 about 10 p.m., shortly after returning home following a public speech.

 

Ibrahim Hussein, the elder brother of one of the victims, said the gunmen took the phones of the house’s inhabitants, went to the kitchen, and ate the food the clerics’ wives had made before abducting his brother and his buddy.

 

Hussein said;

 

“It happened around 10pm when they (the clerics) were alighting from the Toyota Highlander which my brother bought two months ago.

“The kidnappers were five and when they came, they laid ambush somewhere in the dark and were able to capture them immediately.

“After they took them, they marched them inside, seized our phones, went to the kitchen, took Eba and a pot of soup; they ate the food and all the meats in the soup before taking them away.”

 

The abduction victim’s brother confirmed that the kidnappers were armed and that they had called the family and demanded a ransom of N15 million.

 

SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, an Ogun state police spokeswoman, confirmed the occurrence, saying that the police and other security agencies, including local hunters, had begun combing the area’s jungle for the victims.

 

Oyeyemi said;

 

“Yes, we are aware. Our men have been there with others, including local hunters, combing the bush.

“We will get them. We have got others in Ijebu-Ode and other areas in the state. We will get them and deal with them.”
