Three young boys, whose ages ranged between 13 and 15 have been arrested by Ondo State police for attempting to kidnap an 11-year-old Precious Kehinde in the state.
The boys were arrested by detectives acting on tip-off they got from a youth leader in the community.
Kehinde’s grandmother, Mrs. Moronike Akinbinu, said that she was in her house at Iparuku Street, when somebody called and informed her that her child had been kidnapped by two young boys, who were making spirited effort to take him away.
Akinbinu said that she rushed to the scene and saw the two boys dragging Kehinde. She added that she raised alarm at that point, which attracted people, who came to her rescue.
According to her, the suspected kidnappers were later arrested and taken to the police station for questioning.
Another suspect, who was said to have a link with the crime was later arrested by the police.
