Husband & Wife Arrested For Abducting Two Reverend Sisters

The Ondo State Police Command has arrested a couple, Ayodeji and Adebimpe Muyijimi, for orchestrating the abduction of two reverend sisters, Perpetual Apo and Bukola Funmilade, and their driver, Mr. Zwugwa Zibai, on the Benin-Sagamu Expressway at Kajola in Odigbo area of the state in May 2016.

Police specifically disclose that the couple were members of a gang responsible for a series of kidnappings in the state in recent times.

Speaking with journalists, the state police commissioner, Mrs. Hilda Harrison, said the man and his wife have confessed to the crime.

But Mr. Ayodeji, who is physically-challenged said he did not actively participate in the kidnappings due to his condition.

According to the police, his role was to give information about their victims to the other members of the gang while his wife, Adebimpe allegedly kept the arms and ammunition used in operations.

The gang was allegedly led by one Godwin Ufoma, who had also been arrested by the police but currently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.

Police say they would be charged to court. Things like this happen when people are controlled by greed.
