Siblings Kidnapped, Killed in Osun

Police in Osun State have paraded two suspects for allegedly kidnapping and murdering of two siblings in lludun area of Osogbo, the State capital.

The suspects, Isa Memudu, a twenty one year old, 200-level undergraduate in a state owned University and Usman Muyideen, a 20 year old herdsman living in Osogbo, were said to have perpetrated the kidnap on the 26th of January on a football field at Iludun area of the State capital.

They were alleged to have, on the 26th of this month, conspired and kidnapped a 13 year old Thompson Onibokun and a 12 year old Samson Onibokun who were said to be the children of the elder brother of one Usman Muyideen.

In an interview with Daily Mail, Muyideen, said one of victims was his elder brother’s son, while the other was his brother’s stepson.

He said “I called them and took them on a motorcycle. We took them to a place inside the bush at Coker village.”

“I was the one who called their father for ransom. We left them in the bush and went there to feed them.

“We were not there when they died. So we stopped going there, and I stopped calling their father”.

In his own account, Memudu said “We took them to a bush in Coker village and we were there for four days. I know the bush because I always take cows to graze around the area.

“For four days, we fed the children with bread and Big Cola. I wanted to use the ransom to start a business.

“The boys died when they were trying to struggle out of the rope,” he said.

The guardian of the victims explained how he had received phone calls from the abductors demanding 25 million naira from him, which was yet to be paid before the death of the two brothers on the fourth day in captivity.

He said the victims’ corpses were found on the ground tied with ropes.
