Amotekun arrests man for using charm to kidnap woman in Osun




A 35-year-old man, Babalola Abayomi Timothy, has been arrested for allegedly kidnapping a married woman through diabolical means.

Babalola was arrested by the operatives of Osun Amotekun Corps on Monday, April 1, 2024, for kidnapping 35-year-old Sofiyat at Ode-Omu with a magic ring.

According to the Osun Amotekun Corps Commander, Brigadier General Bashir Adewinmbi rtd, while addressing journalists on Wednesday in Osogbo, the Modakeke indigene was arrested at Sekona town, Osun State.

Adewinmbi said the suspect used a magic ring to control the woman from her husband’s house in Ode-Omu to his residence in Modakeke where he held her hostage for three weeks and randomly sexually assaulted her.

He said, “The suspect on the 29th of March 2024 took the woman to Ile-Ife and dropped her along the road where the woman raised an alarm which alerted Amotekun operatives who swung into action immediately and trailed the suspect to his hideout in Sekona where he was arrested.

“The suspect confessed that on September 2023 the victim Sofiyat approached him to help her sell her palm oil because that is the business he does, and along the line, he asked her out but she refused, saying she was married.

“He later approached one Alfa Ilorin, an herbalist in Sekona who gave him some charms. Since then, he claims that the woman has been listening and following his command. He controlled her using the charm to leave her husband and she did. He changed her sim card and they moved to Modakeke from Ode-Omu. All this happened within 3 weeks and has been sleeping with her randomly.”

Adewinmbi added that upon investigation, the suspect confessed to committing the act.

The Osun Amotekun boss revealed that the suspect has been transferred to the Department of State Services, DSS, for subsequent interrogation and prosecution.

Adewinmbi also advised residents of the state to be security conscious and be careful with the individuals they deal with.
