Oniba of Iba, Lagos State, Oba Yushau Goriala Oseni, who was kidnapped by gun men, regained his freedom on Saturday August 6th. The Lagos State Police Command paraded the two arrested suspects during a press conference and while being interviewed by journalists, they said nine people were involved in the operation that led to the kidnap of the monarch.
The two suspects – Isaiah Ododomu and Toba Forejo (both pictured) said they were involved in illegal oil bunkering but were stopped from the business due to the renewed efforts of government against them, adding that they were arrested on Saturday at Iyana School in Lagos. Narrating how the attack was carried out, Isaiah said:
“I was involved in illegal bunkering. As this government stopped bunkering, our leaders arranged another group and this mission of the new group was to start kidnapping and use it to manage ourselves since we can’t do oil bunkering again. I am a married man, I don’t have any job to do. We used to do security for those main guys and anytime they make about N500, 000 they will give us like N20,000.”
