…Says Abductors Pretended As Clients
The abducted aluminum window maker in Iseyin, Adegbite Jamiu Adeyemi has been released by his kidnappers on Sunday evening after parting with the sum of One Million, Four Hundred and Fifty Naira.
The Chronicler Newspaper reported on Sunday that Jamiu was declared missing by his family twenty-four hours after traveling to Okaka in Itesiwaju local government to meet some clients that promised to give him job on Saturday.
He returned to his house at Sawmill area of Iseyin on Monday morning and in an interview he granted The Chronicler Newspaper on Monday, he said God saved his life because the people who took him planned ahead to kidnap and get money from him and not from his family, as it was the usual practice by kidnappers.
Adeyemi said he was he received a call from the strangers that they saw his work somewhere and would want him to do same job for them at their new site at Okaka, not knowing that it was a bait.
“I got a call as that I should come and do a job like I have done for someone in Iseyin for them at Okaka, not knowing that it was a bait, they knew about a job I did recently and wanted to collect the money from me.
”I told my people that I got a new client and I would travel there to see them but I was advised to go along with one or two people, but I declined, saying it was not the first time I would travel to see clients alone.
”I boarded the vehicle to Okaka and met them at the place they described only to be told to get on a bike so we could go to the site, on getting to a bush, they took me by force with weapons to deep forest, telling me to bring everything in my possession.
”I went there with my phone and ATM card of my bank, they asked me to open my phone bank app, took my debit card and transferred #1.450million and they asked me to be trekking back to the town.
”I trekked till I could see people who I told my story and they took me to the Ijio police station where my people came to bring me back to Iseyin.”
Jamiu called on young artisans not to be indifferent to advises from people especially when issues of security are discussed, adding that if he had heeded the advise of his elders at the workshop to go along with one person or two, the abduction would have been unsuccessful.
