  • Man abducts, exchanges 10-yr-old boy for 3 bags of rice
  • LAGOS— An unidentified middleaged man
    abducted a 10-year-old boy, who was on an
    errand for his mother, and exchanged him for
    three bags of rice in Ijegun area of Lagos.
    The suspect, now on the run, reportedly
    accosted the victim (names withheld), weekend,
    at Prince Bus Stop, Isheri Oshun, while on the
    errand for his mother.
    He was said to have introduced himself to the
    unsuspecting boy as a relative.
    In an apparent move to convince the boy, the
    stranger, followed him to the shop where he was
    sent to buy a bottle of groundnut oil and
    thereafter, took him to a shop where he
    collected three bags of rice.
    He convinced the salesgirl, identified simply as
    Deborah, that he was going to get the money,
    while his brother remained with her.
    However, that was not to be as the salesgirl
    waited endlessly without seeing the stranger or
    the money for the bags of rice, which totalled
    N48,000.
    The transaction
    Speaking with Vanguard, the salesgirl said: “
    When the man came to the shop with the boy,
    he asked how much was a bag of rice. I told
    him it was N16,000 and he left with the boy,
    saying he was going to tell the woman that sent
    them.
    “Moments later, he came back and said that he
    needed two bags. Again, he called the purported
    person that sent them on phone and suggested
    that they should add one more bag.
    “After the call, he told me to help him get a
    tricycle that would convey the three bags of rice
    to Fire Junction, where he claimed the owner
    was. He said the boy will remain with me while
    he went to get the money.
    “After waiting for close to one hour without
    seeing him, I told the boy to take me to his
    mum’s shop at the said Fire Junction.
    “But he said that his mother did not own a shop
    there and that the stranger only met him on the
    road and brought him to the shop.
    “It was at that point that I knew I had been
    robbed. I alerted my neighbour, who said that
    the stranger must have used the boy as
    exchange for the bags of rice.”
    Meanwhile, apprehension had set in at the boy’s
    house after his disturbed mother visited the
    shop, only to be informed that his son had left
    with a stranger.
    While a search party was combing the vicinity
    for the boy, the owner of the shop and the
    salesgirl, were sighted taking him to the Isheri-
    Oshun Police Division.
    During interrogation, the boy told his parents:
    “After returning from the shop, the stranger
    asked if I knew where they sell bags of rice. I
    told him they were selling close to our house.
    “But he said he did not want to buy there that I
    should follow him to buy elsewhere.
    “I followed him because he introduced himself
    as my cousin. He collected the money I had
    with me to pay for the fare and told me to wait
    at the shop, that he would come and take me
    back home after dropping the bags of rice.”
    The Police, however, released him to his parents
    same day with a directive to report back to the
    station yesterday, where a meeting between the
    boy’s parents and owner of the shop who
    insisted on getting the money for the bags of
    rice.
