The Ondo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun, has arrested a scavenger, whose identity has not been revealed, for allegedly kidnapping an eight-year-old girl in Akure, the state capital.

The suspect allegedly hit the victim with a charm and put her in a sack but was arrested by the residents of the area while trying to escape.

The state Amotekun Commander , Adetunji Adeleye, while speaking on the incident on Friday, said the suspect pretended to be a scavenger to carry out the dastardly act.

The commander said the suspect would be charged to court after the completion of an investigation into the matter.

Adeleye said, “The suspect pretended to be a scavenger picking rubbles, but luckily, the grandmother of the child heard the cry of the girl and when they looked round, they saw somebody stepping away with the child inside a sack.

“So, when they raised the alarm, he attacked them with different objects including a burning firewood he picked from a woman cooking nearby, but they were able to quickly alert Amotekun operatives and he was arrested.

“Upon interrogation, we discovered that he is actually a kidnapper and he confessed that he has been in the trade for a while. Investigation continues on his case before we would finally hand him over to the court.

“We would like to know his sponsors, those who are his bosses, what he does with the previous ones he had successfully taken away before his arrest today.
