An ex-convict, Mumini Oseni, 25, has been arrested in Osogbo, Osun State capital for luring a girl with N50 in an attempt to abduct her.
The suspect who was arrested by the men of the Amotekun Corps at Obanisola Street, Osogbo, was said to have been previously convicted of armed robbery.
Oseni was caught when the victim raised the alarm which attracted the attention of her mother, forcing the suspect to attempt to flee the scene.
But he was arrested before he could escape from the area by Amotekun operatives who responded to the distress call.
Confirming the arrest in a statement in Osogbo on Monday, the Osun Amotekun Corps Commander, Brig.-Gen. Bashir Adewinmbi (retd.), said, “The operatives of Amotekun arrested the culprit in Osogbo while trying to kidnap a young girl around Obanisola Street, Powerline area, Osogbo and the young girl raised the alarm which attracted the mother of the girl and the neighbours.
“Complaint was lodged at the Amotekun Olorunda Command and operatives swung into action. He was immediately apprehended. During a cross-examination, Mumini Oseni confessed to perpetrating the act. He is an ex-convict jailed for armed robbery.
“The suspect has been handed over to the police for subsequent interrogation and prosecution.”
