The Nigeria Police Force, Oyo State Command has paraded a rat killer seller and his three children for allegedly kidnapping and killing an eight-year-old boy, Abdulraheem Bamimore.
Parading the suspects in Ibadan at the headquarters of the police command on Wednesday in Eleyele, the police commissioner, Ngozi Onadeko, said that the suspects committed the offences on March 4 in the Saki area of the state.
“The dragnet of the command caught up with the suspects on Monday for allegedly abducting and murdering Abdulraheem, an eight-year-old minor,” she said.
It was learnt that two of the suspects lured the deceased to an undisclosed location, hoping to get a ransom from his parents. But when the boy recognised them, they killed him, NAN reports.
“On March 7, a search party was organised and during the process, the lifeless body of the victim named Abdulraheem Bamimore (male), aged eight years, was found inside an uncompleted building at Alubarika area, Saki.
“Upon interrogation, two of the suspects (names withheld), confessed to having conspired to kidnap the victim for ransom but eventually killed him because he (victim) recognised and could identify them.
“Further updates on the incident would be provided in due course as the investigation continues,” Onadeko said.
