Some alleged kidnappers have kidnapped a Sanni Abdulasis, the son of the Chief Imam of Ode Omi, a border community between Lagos and Ogun.
Sanni, learned daily, has just returned from Saudi Arabia, where he studied Arabic. It was learned that the attackers fired at two other Imam children, as they stole a speedboat with which they escaped with their victims.
Armed men also reportedly kidnapped two brothers, Jelili and Bamidele Adams. Jelili, a tailor, was reportedly sewing clothes for his clients for the celebration of Eid-el-Kabir when the attackers attacked.
In condemning the act, the governor of the state of Ogun, Prince Dapo Abiodun, said his administration was considering the death penalty for kidnappers in the country.
Abiodun revealed this when some Islamic faithful paid a visit to Eid-el-Kabir at his country house in Iperu.
He reported that the judiciary in the state of Ogun is working to enact a bill to that effect, even when he defended community policing.
Abiodun added that the police were already following the kidnappers; ensuring that victims would be rescued unharmed.
