Father Kidnaps Son To Get Money For His Girlfriend Through His Church In Lagos

KIDNAP by man and his girlfriend

The level some men go these days just to satisfy a woman’s needs is quite ridiculous. As you read this, a 48yrs old father, Adeyinka Adebayo, has confessed in the custody of the SSS how he masterminded the kidnap of his own 9-year-old son in the Badagry area of Lagos.

Adebayo said he committed the shameful act because he thought his church will give him money for the ransom so that he could use the money to take care of his 28yrs old girlfriend.

“At the end of the day, I was able to raise N450,000 from my church members and friends, who earlier refused to help me,” the father confesses.

The girlfriend, Kehinde Alonge, alos participated in the sham kidnap. Parading Adebayo and his lover before journalists, the Director, Lagos State Command of the SSS, Mr. Victor Achu, explained that Adebayo had on October 3 reported at the command that his son had been kidnapped.

Achu said: “The command swung into action. Preliminary investigations confirmed the kidnap of the boy by one Kehinde Alonge, who demanded a ransom of N350,000 for his release and directed that the money be paid into a UBA account.

“The account was later discovered to be owned by one Taiwo Faloye. After series of tactical planning, the owner of the account and Kehinde were arrested at Ilesha, Osun State, while trying to withdraw the money.”

A mild drama, however, unfolded following an argument between Adebayo and Kehinde over who brought up the kidnap plan.

While Adebayo claimed Kehinde hatched the plan to get the N200,000 she needed to open a hairdressing saloon, she interrupted, stating that “he is lying. I was in Ilesha when he called me to come to Lagos that some people owed him money.

“He said the only way to collect the money from them was for me to come and take his son away, while he pretends that he had been kidnapped.

“I came to Lagos on October 4. I intended going to the school to pick the boy, but Adebayo advised I picked him from the house. Since the children knew me, I told the boy to follow me to get something outside and entered the next available vehicle to Ilesha, Osun State. His father even gave me N3,000 for transport.

Counter allegation
But Adebayo insisted that his girlfriend needs the money. He said: “My girlfriend said she needed money to open her own hair dressing saloon. Since I was not financially buoyant, I decided to raise money by masterminding my son’s kidnap.

“I am a vulcanizer and business had not been booming. Anyone I approached for money usually declined to assist me. To get money from my church members in particular, I had to mastermind my son’s kidnap.

“He spent nine days at my girlfriend’s house. I regret my action because my son may never forgive me if he is told. I feel ashamed also because his mother has been down with stroke, though we are no longer married.

“I beg to be forgiven. It was the handiwork of the devil.”

The SSS is however insisting that Mr Adebayo and Kehinde would be charged to court.
The suspects, according to Ochu, would be charged to court.
