Two siblings, Oyeleke Blessing and Oyeleke David are in police net for allegedly plotting to kidnap and kill their former employer, Makinde Oluwatoyin’s family.
The suspects were arrested alongside their accomplice, Kabiru Oniyitan at the Onipanu area of Ogun State. 
The suspects, it was learnt, called Oluwatoyin, a businessman on his mobile phone number, demanding N2 million within three days or risk losing his entire family.
Speaking on the arrest of the suspects, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), said Oluwatoyin reported the matter to the Onipanu Police Division.
Oyeyemi said upon the report, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Bamidele Job, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) embarked on intelligence and technical-based investigation, which paid off.
He said: “Three persons were on December 8, arrested by operatives of the Ogun State Police Command for threatening and making an attempt to kidnap their former employer.
“The suspects were arrested following a report made by one Makinde Oluwatoyin, the Managing Director of Precy Company, Ota, who reported on the December 4, that he received a phone call from an anonymous caller who threatened to kidnap his son, Makinde Solomon from school and wipe out his entire family if he failed to pay the sum of N2 million to a specific bank account within three days.
“He stated further that the caller described his children’s school and the location of his residence, which suggests that he has been under their surveillance for some time. Upon the report, the DPO detailed his detectives to embark on intelligence and technical based investigation.
“Their efforts paid off when one of them was traced to her hideout and was arrested with the phone which they were using to make calls to the man. Her arrest led to the subsequent arrest of her two other accomplices, while one other is still at large.
“ On interrogation, they confessed to have jointly planned the crime together having worked in the man’s company before and known his financial capacity.”
The PPRO said the Commissioner of Police (CP) Edward Ajogun, had ordered the transfer of the case to Anti-Kidnapping Unit of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), for a discreet investigation.
