Popular Oyo state Islamic cleric, Sheik Taofeeq Akewugbagol whose children (twins) were kidnaped in their home at Oyo state has disclosed that the kidnappers had requested a sum of £100, 000 ransom which is about N50.m+ when it is converted.
The incident happened on the 25th of April, 2020 which was on Saturday. The father of the twins announced the kidnap on his Facebook page. It has been a week since their children have been abducted but the police command spokesman, SP Fadeyi Olugbenga has assured that the twins will be found and rescued alive.
According to a report on Lindaikejisblog, the cleric man said;
”We have been contacted and we have been exchanging conversations with the abductors. We are begging them on a daily basis to reduce the ransom. They have asked for £100, 000 which is N55 million. Since then we have been begging them and I believe they will consider our plea.
The abductors speak good English meaning they are graduates. They were first harsh but later very friendly. It is very unfortunate. I am appealing to the government to wake up to their duty. If things continue like this, only God knows what will happen.”
Sheik Taofeeq Akewugbagol also added that the wife who had gone 12 years without children has been a critical condition ever since the abduction of her twins. She made a video that appeared on LIB pleading with the kidnappers of her children to please release them back to her alive.
The cleric added that
”We have been moving their mother from one hospital to the other since that day while for me, I am just trying to control myself because it is raising my BP. I put my hope in Almighty Allah.”
And that he received a picture of his children “looking sad“
”They sent their pictures to us and we studied it and saw it was not photoshopped. The children looked sad. One was crying while the second one’s eye was swollen. It is an experience I can never pray for my worse enemy. I need my children”
