Oyo-based lawyer, Mr. Aderemi Adebiyi has reunited with his three-year-son barely 24 hours after he was whisked away from their residence by kidnappers.

Adebiyi told CITY LAWYER that the toddler was released after spending hours in the kidnappers’ den.

Also announcing the release in an online post, Adebiyi said: “To God be the glory, just like my neighbour, Michael Adetayo Adebiyi has been reunited with us, while my brother is still recuperating. Thank you all for your love, interest and prayers.”

He sent “special thanks” to the men of the Nigeria Police Oyo State Command and the Amotekun Corps “for the active role they played during the trying moment,” adding that “Surely, Nigeria’ll be better.”

CITY LAWYER had reported that the distressed father had yesterday sent a Save-Our-Soul message that bandits struck last night at their Bode Thomas Estate, Offametta, Oyo, Oyo State residence, shot his brother and whisked away his child.

His words: “The insecurity situation in this country is not limited to any region, my house was attacked today by some Fulani men around midnight, and my younger brother was shot in the process and he’s currently receiving treatment. My 3-year-old boy has also been kidnapped and we are praying for his safe return.”

According to Adebiyi, “I’ve also been reliably informed that one of my neighbours was equally kidnapped,” adding: “Please pray for us. It seems our estate is now their target. It’s on record that this is the second time we are experiencing this sort of incident.”

Adebiyi told CITY LAWYER that the bandits had not made any contact with him, adding: “But they’ve contacted my neighbour’s relative demanding for 100 million (naira).”

There has been heightened insecurity in the country, even as President Muhammadu Buhari recently held a series of meetings with his security chiefs towards containing the menace.
