Photos: Baby Stolen At Naming Ceremony In Ogun

A 20-month old child,
Opeyemi Ogundele was reported stolen on Sunday during a naming ceremony in
Abeokuta. NAN learnt that the incident happened at Mile 2, Iyana
Concord, Akorede Estate, Ilugun Inukosegba Community in Abeokuta North Local
Government Area of the state.
Community members, however, besieged the residence of one
Chief Olasile Ifayemi, an herbalist alleged to be the kidnapper of the child.
Elizabeth Ogundele, 26, mother of the toddler, who narrated
her ordeal, said she was getting ready for her niece’s naming ceremony when she
discovered her son was missing.

She said that she had gone to celebrate with her brother,
Olusola Osunleke on Sunday when the incident happened.
“I was helping my brother’s wife get ready for the ceremony
when I noticed that my son was missing.
“I searched for him in and around the house because some
tenants said they saw him playing ball, but he was nowhere to be seen.
“I ran outside the house into the community still searching
and that was when I encountered two guys at Chief Ifayemi’s house.
“I asked if they had seen my son, they denied and started
giggling, so I left.”
NAN reports that youths in the community vandalised the
bungalow belonging to the alleged kidnapper.
Different fetish items and human parts were discovered at
the scene as angry youths were getting ready to set the bungalow ablaze.
The head of the community could not be reached as at press
time as he was not available.
The Commissioner of Police, Abdulmajid Ali, who confirmed
the incidence, said that investigations were ongoing.
“Actually a two years old boy was kidnapped yesterday, but
the site that was discovered has no relationship with the boy and other human
parts that were found at the site.
“Already, we have commenced investigation on the matter‎ and
we will let you see what really happened when we finish our investigation.
“I want to make it clear to the people of the state that I’m
here to work and to reduce crime and criminality to the barest minimum.
“We will not allow miscreants to continue to disturb us no
matter their intention,” the police chief said.
