A 27-years-old woman, Mariam Ayila, was on Tuesday, 20th of December 2022, arrested by men of the Ogun State Police Command, for the kidnapping of a 13-year-old girl, Sofiat Yusau.

The suspect was arrested following a report lodged at Agbara divisional headquarters by one Ismail Yusau, who reported that he sent his daughter on an errand to Agbara Market at about 11:am of the day, only to receive a strange call some hours after from an unknown person, who informed him that his daughter has been kidnapped and that if he didn’t send the sum of N250,000  as ransom, he would see his daughter again.

Upon the report, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Agbara Division, Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Abiodun Salau, mobilised a team of detectives and embarked on the technical and intelligence-based investigation.

Their efforts yielded positive results when the suspect was traced to her hideout in Atan ota area, where she was promptly arrested, and the little girl was rescued unhurt.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect had earlier kidnapped a young girl at Itele Ota area on the 19th of December 2022, and ransom was paid to her before she released her victim.

The Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has directed that the suspect be handed over to the Anti kidnapping unit of the state Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and prosecution.
