Six suspect caught over kidnap of Lagos school girls

Lagos Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ebute Metta, yesterday remanded six men suspected of kidnapping three pupils of Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary School, Ikorodu, in February.
Remanded are: Emmanuel Arigidi, 37; Gift Pius, 30; Omoni Rufus Fred, 32; Owei Omobo Geofrey, 38; Akanji Seun, 38; and
James Henry Segun, 29.
Chief Magistrate I. O. Adelaja made the order following an application filed and argued by police prosecutor, Mr. Godwin Osuyi, pursuant to section 264(1) and (2), of the Administration of Criminal Justice Law (ACJL) of Lagos State, 2011.
The application, according to Osuyi, was necessary so that the defendants could be taken into custody while advice on the matter was sought from the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecution, (DPP,).
He pleaded for 30 days to begin with.
There was no objection from the suspects’ counsel, Mr. Ola Ogunbiyi.
Consequently, Chief Magistrate Adelaja upheld the prosecution’s application and remanded the accused persons in prison custody for 30 days.
She also ordered the police to duplicate the case file and forward it to the DPP for advice.
In a charge sheet marked D/13/16, attached to the remand application, the police alleged that on February 29, at about 8p.m, the suspects, while armed with AK 47s and other offensive weapons, invaded Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary School, Ikorodu, and unlawfully detained and kidnapped three students of the institution.
The three girls allegedly kidnapped by the suspects are: Tofunmi Popo-Olaniyan, 15; Olusa Timilehin, 14; and Deborah Akintayo, 14.
The suspects were alleged to have taken the students to their hideout in a creek between Imota and Igbokuta area of Ikorodu, before they were rescued by the police on March 6.
The police also alleged that the men robbed the principal of the school, Venerable Ola Oluwa Adeyemi, of the sum of N5.6 million.
Aside that, the first suspect, Emmanuel Arigidi, was also alleged to be a member of the armed gang that attacked First City Monument Bank (FCMB) at Admiralty Way, Lekki, on March 12, and carted away the sum of N24 million.
