August 19, 2022
The kidnappers who masterminded the kidnapping of the Onikun of Ikun, Mukaila Bello, in Ondo State have expressed surprise that N4 million ransom was paid. The criminals were reportedly appalled after it was revealed to them that their leader collected N4M and not N2M that he told them.
According to the five visibly angry kidnappers, their leader told them it was N2 million they made, and each of them was paid N200,000. This means that their leader, who is currently at large, carted away with N3 million.
The suspects whose names are Ilyas Lawal, 27; Mohammadu Abubakar Sidi, 26; Garuba Bature, 36; Abubakar Danny, 20, and Mohammed Mosere, 25 were paraded in Akure, the Ondo State capital
However, it would be recalled that the traditional ruler, the Onikun of Ikun, Mukaila Bello alongside others were kidnapped at about 6:30 p.m., around Ago-Yeye, along Owo/Ikare Road on August. 4, 2022
During the operation, the driver conveying them was shot in the head.
