The gang were recently apprehended by the police and were paraded at the state command headquarters in Ibadan. When interrogated, Ibrahim said he organized his father’s abduction because he has refused to cater for him and his siblings.

According to Ibrahim, his father has many wives and has not been responsible for the upkeep of his many children. He says he felt that the only way to get money from his father was to organize his abduction.

“We are many. My father married many wives and he doesn’t care for us. We are left by my father to fend for ourselves.  So, I think the only way to get money out of him is to organise for his abduction and force him to part with the money.”
