A 13years old boy, Abraham Stephen who lives in Odo Ijimo Iyere Owo has been rescued from kidnappers who took him from Owo by a good samaritan as he claimed he was travelling to Ibadan alone.
The boy who initially said he left home due to maltreat from his mother later narrated his ordeal to personnel of NSCDC Ondo Command Anti-Human Trafficking Unit.
Upon interviewing the child he claimed he was picked up at AUD primary school Iyere Owo by two young boys dressed in black hooded jalamia, they had threatened to shoot him if he shouts or attempted to run.
According to Abraham he was coerced to follow them, and upon entering the car, he saw two more young boys also dressed in black hooded jalamia.
While they travelled, as they were about getting to a police check point, the boys told him to alight for fear of being caught by the police, they instructed Abraham to board a car going to Ibadan that they will pick him up afterwards.
Fortunately, the first car that stopped to pick him was suspicious of the fact that a boy of his age was traveling to Ibadan unaccompanied, hence he took him to NSCDC office at FEMA along Agbogbo road.
According to Abraham he noticed that the Jeep was on their trail from the spot where the driver picked him and as soon as the car tuned to NSCDC ‘s office they drove off and stopped trailing them.
The mother of the victim was contacted and was asked to come for her son in Akure. She was shocked upon her arrival.
She narrated that she left her son at home for the market, she was away in
the market when she received a call from officer of NSCDC that her son was in their custody.
Abraham has been handed over to his mother Stephen Ajayi Toyin.
