Businesswoman’s Son shot dead, Daughter kidnapped by gunmen

Unknown gunmen in the early hours of Friday struck at the residence of a popular businesswoman in Alagbado area of Ogun State, killing the woman’s son, Abdulganiy Musa, and kidnapping her daughter, Mistura.

According to Nigerian Tribune, the gunmen broke into the woman’s house at about 3:00 am and reportedly gunned down her son, Musa, through the window before whisking away her daughter, Mistura.

The woman was reportedly not at home when the attackers struck, but some of her relations, who spoke with journalists during the burial rites of her deceased son on Friday morning, said that the abductors had called to demand N10 million ransom for her kidnapped daughter.

The people said that the attackers also threatened the relations to pay up on time before any unfortunate incident could happen to the victim of the attack.


The relations also said that the abductors were speaking in Fulani language when they contacted them.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Okasanmi Ajayi, who confirmed the incident, said that the command has already commenced an investigation into the matter.

It is recalled that gunmen also attacked a family of a trader, Alfa Tunde Aribidesi, at a place close to Alagbado last week when the victim was reportedly macheted to death and her two children were abducted before they luckily escaped from the kidnappers’ den.
