A four-man kidnapping group was arrested for allegedly kidnapping and murdering a seven-year-old boy, Abdulmalik Musa, after obtaining the N300,000 ransom for his release in Ogun State.
The deceased, the police said, was kidnapped last week, Wednesday, at his parents ‘ home, by alleged kidnappers, who were said to have conniveled with Faruq Seidu, the uncle of the deceased boy.
It was learned that Seidu had contracted the kidnappers against the refusal of Abdul-ammed Musa, the boy’s father, to give him money to marry his third wife.
Seidu and other suspects were said to have originally demanded a ransom of N5,000,000, which was later reduced to N300,000.
They killed the boy, however, and threw his body into a river in Abeokuta, claiming that the boy had recognized one of the suspects.
