I learnt k!dnapping from watching actor Zubby Michael in movies — 23-yr-old suspect
A man who was captured by the police in Ogun state for supposedly seizing a six-year-old youngster, has said he took in the demonstration of k!dnapping from watching Nollywood Actor Zubby Michael’s films.
The suspect identified as Ayobamidele Kudus Ayodele supposedly hijacked the student from his school in Ojo Alaba space of Lagos, on November 16, 2021 and kept him hostage for four days until a payment of over a large portion of 1,000,000 was paid for his telease.
As indicated by Vanguard, he said that Zubby Michael is his beloved Nollywood entertainer and he is great at k!dnapping jobs. He chose to evaluate a portion of the strategies utilized by Zubby to k!dnap youngsters and grown-ups in the movies.
“I started by visiting several schools around Ojo to see the possibility of picking children without anyone noticing. On November 16, 2021, I visited a school close to Alaba Market and stayed by the gate.”
“I saw two pupils coming to school. One of them was holding a cane. I stopped them and started chatting with them. I took the cane from one of them and asked where he bought it. He mentioned the place but I told him to take me there. I whispered into his ears that I would buy him chocolates and biscuits.
To avoid drawing attention to myself, I took the boy to an hotel in Ilogbo Eremi, Lagos. I called his father and demanded for additional N2 million. We spent four days there before his family was able to raise N550,000. The boy stayed calm throughout because he had access to my phone which had several games.”
Ayobamidele Kudus Ayodele continued by saying he apologises for causing his own family so much pa!n. He is neither a cu!tist nor an armed robber.
“I don’t have a gang. I just trained myself by watching Zubby Michael. My parents trained me very well, I was just impatient and greedy.”
