Suspect docked over attempt to kidnap boy in Lagos

A 30-year-old woman, Sade Odubayo, was yesterday brought before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, over alleged attempt to kidnap a 4-year-old boy.

Odubayo, whose address was not provided, is facing a charge of attempted kidnap to which she pleaded not guilty.


The prosecutor, Insp. Chinalu Uwadione, told the court that the accused committed the offence on Sept. 1 at 5.30pm, at No. 4, Lower St., Ikorodu, Lagos.

Uwadione said the accused had attempted to kidnap the 4-year-old child of Deshino Awogundade.


“She was caught as she was about to lead the boy out of the compound,’’ he said.

The offence contravened Section 277 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

In her ruling, the chief magistrate, Mrs A.O. Adedayo, granted the accused bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Adedayo said the sureties should show evidence of three years tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

She adjourned the case until Sept. 26 for mention. (NAN)
