A suspected kidnapper, who disguised as a mad man to abduct a four-year-old girl from Christ Anointed Church, in Ayobo area of Lagos, during church service, has been arrested.
The suspect, simply identified as Jacob Dare (28). According to the father of the girl, Mr Ebhoboghe Rufus, attempted to lure his child with N50.
The fahter said: “He wanted to lure her to follow him with N50. When the alarm was raised by some members of the church, he attempted to flee the scene but was apprehended.”
Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Police Command, Imohimi Edgal, who paraded the suspect alongside other suspects arrested for various crimes within one week in the state, said:
“On receipt of the complaint, the anti-kidnapping squad of the command was directed to take over the case and institute a discreet investigation into the matter.
“Upon investigation, the suspect, Jacob Dare, who hitherto was pretending to be insane later abandoned his art of trickery and stated that he is of sound mind and he only went to the church to worship.
“He cunningly defended his act of luring the little girl with a N50 note by claiming that he was only asking for direction from the little girl and her mother.”
