Two suspected kidnappers nabbed in Ondo.

The suspected kidnappers were nabbed on Tuesday, in Erusu-Akoko, Akoko North-West Local Government Area of Ondo State after they were accused of attempting to snatch a 2-year-old baby from her mother’s back.

It was gathered that the mother of the baby was trailed by the suspected kidnappers from Aga area of the town. She struggled with the hoodlums when they allegedly attempted to pull her child from her back and then raised the alarm.

An eyewitness said the loud shouts of the baby’s mother attracted sympathisers who rushed to the scene of the incident to rescue the victims, and eventually prevented the kidnappers from evading arrest.
It was learnt that the irate mob pounced on the attackers, stripped them naked and attempted to set them ablaze, but for the prompt intervention of the traditional ruler of the town, Oba Sunday Mogaji, a lawyer.
