Kidnappers who killed businesswoman, two boys in Ibadan arrested


Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers on Saturday, 2 January 2021 killed a businesswoman, Alhaja Serifat Adisa, and two boys at Idere in Ibarapa Central Local Government Area of Oyo State.

Alhaja Adisa, the Chief Executive Officer of Subawa filling station, was kidnapped and killed along Igboora/Idere road at about 8.30pm.

The gunmen reportedly began shooting sporadically around the filling station and stray bullets killed the two boys instantly.

According to a man who introduced himself as the boys’ uncle, the boys’ mother was on the phone with a commercial motorcyclist in Idere when she was spotted by the hoodlums who immediately fired at her.

“While she was making the call one of the gunmen, who had already positioned themselves around the Subawa filling station, on sighting the woman making call, felt she might be calling security operatives and fired a shot directly at the woman who was standing with the two kids. The stray bullets hit the boys who both died instantly, while the woman fled into the bush,” he said.

Sources said the kidnappers killed the woman when they discovered that they were being trailed by a vigilante group and the Amotekun Security operatives.
