But, according to Owoseni, Adams was never in the hotel with the Baale but was only at the hotel’s restaurant but left after some minutes.
“The wife of the Baale actually drove the Venza car allegedly used to abduct the supposed victim into the hotel,” he said.
The CP added that after the suspects were confronted with the facts, they confessed.
Owoseni said immediately Ogundare was allegedly kidnapped, Adams went to the community and called the town crier to order traders to close their shops and markets.
Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem, who also spoke on the incident, demanded the unconditional release of the six children kidnapped from Igbonla Model College since May 25.
He said it was disheartening that while the state government and security agencies were working to secure the release of the children, “some unscrupulous persons deemed it fit to raise false alarm,” on kidnapping.
Kazeem said it was situations such as this that prompted Governor Ambode to sign the anti-kidnapping bill into law.,
The government, he warned, would not hesitate to prosecute anyone who runs fowl of the law.
Kazeem noted that Section 5 of the anti-kidnapping Law prescribes that “a person who overtly or covertly puts himself forward to be kidnapped or abducted by another for the purpose of extracting money or ransom, from another or for any other reason commits an offence and shall be liable on conviction to fourteen (14) years imprisonment.”
