An Ilorin Magistrate’s Court in Ilorin, Kwara State has remanded a district head, Ibrahim Ahmed and his two sons over their alleged involvement in kidnapping.

Ahmad, 55, who is the Magaji Alase of Ilorin and his sons, Ibrahim,18, and Mohammed, 15, were arraigned before the court on two-count charges of conspiracy to commit kidnapping and kidnapping contrary to sections 2, 1 of the Kwara State (Prohibition) of Kidnapping Law 2010.

The police first information (FIR) stated that the complainant, one Lawal Ayanshola of Shao town in Moro local government area of the state, said while he was sleeping in his house, some unknown gunmen came and kidnapped his wife, Afusat and son, Taofeek and whisked them to an unknown destination.

“The kidnappers had earlier collected the sum of N230,000 from him while taking the abductees but later demanded for a ransom of N14 million using his wife’s phone number.

“He later paid the sum of N3.2 million as ransom before his wife and sons were released”, the FIR stated.

The police report added that during attempts by the policemen to rescue the victims, two suspected kidnappers sustained gun injuries and were taken to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) where they were confirmed dead.

The police prosecutor, Samuel Mayowa, told the court that, “while searching the forest, the police, recovered one single barrel gun, nine bottles of drinks, three pairs of rubber shoes, one cap, one jacket, and the sum of N177,500 from the defendants.”

He urged the court to remand the accused at the correctional facility pending the outcome of further investigation into the matter.

In his ruling, Magistrate Adam Mohammed ordered the remand of the first and second accused at the Federal Correctional Centre and the third suspect, being a minor should be kept at the Borstal Facility in Ilorin pending the legal advice from office of the attorney-general of the state.

Mohammed adjourned the matter till October 4, 2022 for further mention.
