Man Conspires With Gang To Rob, Abduct In-Law
Komolafe Rasaq sold his in-law for 70,000 Naira only.
He connived with 6 other people to rob and hold his in-law in a secret spot while demanding for ransom.
The state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude, said the arrest of the suspects led to the recovery of three vehicles, including a saloon car belonging to Rasaq’s in-law.
Apart from Rasaq, others arrested were Adetunji Adeboye, 35; Oluwaseun Ayeni, 30; Lukman Lawal, 31; Mohammed Lawal, 52; Baba Adamu, 63; Abidoye Solomon, 27; and Omote Pius.
Odude said Rasaq invited the gang and set the stage for the robbery of his in-law, who was at home with her children.
He said, “On February 11, 2017, a gang of armed robbers invaded the victim’s house at night and robbed her of her valuables.
"They also abducted her and drove her away in her car. We arrested them after receiving a petition on the activities of the gang.
"Further investigation led to the arrest of criminal receivers of stolen cars and property at various locations in Niger and Kaduna states.”
Rasaq said he made N70,000 from the robbery, adding that he joined the gang at a location after the success of the operation.
