8-year-old boy kidnapped from school, exchanged for N51,000 goods in Lagos by Everest(m) : 9:00 PM On 2015
An attempt by a middle-aged man to exchange an eight-year-old kidnapped boy with goods worth N51,000 in Surulere area of Lagos, has been foiled , following his arrest, Monday.
The suspect, identified as Jonathan Cooker, reportedly kidnapped the primary school pupil (names withheld) who was returning from a summer coaching in a school located around Lawrence road.
Thereafter, he reportedly took the boy to a provision store located on Cole Street and ordered for crates of soft drinks worth N51,000.
Instead of paying, he was said to have told the shop owner that he would be leaving his younger brother (kidnapped boy) behind, to get money from the house. The unsuspecting shop owner obliged him and gave the crates of soft drinks to him.
But the bubble burst after a passer-by who identified the little boy asked what he was doing in the shop. At that moment, Cooker reportedly increased his pace in a bid to escape from the scene . But he was immediately apprehended when the little boy told the passer-by that he was picked by a stranger.
