A middle aged man simply identified as Kabiru has been arrested in Orita area of Ilaro while trying to kidnap a young female ‘fufu’ seller on tuesday night.
Inkline Times correspondent, Victoria Salami gathered that the man, who dressed like a mad man was pricing fufu from the innocent girl for too long when some market women suspected the identity and behaviour of the man.
However, luck ran out of the man when his conversion with the girl was made known to the public who descended on the alleged kidnapper.
Upon apprehension, kabiru pleaded to be handled with care and confessed to be a kidnapper. The angry mob beat him mercilessly until various charms were uncovered under his cloth to confirm his health status and his criminal intent.
The event which occurred around 9pm on Tuesday was however handled by members of Ilaro Divisional Police who took Kabiru away for safety and further interrogations.
Orita area of Ilaro is a densely populated area mostly with the students of Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro.
