A middle-aged man has been arrested by some detectives of the Ondo state police command for allegedly selling off her hunched-back mother for ₦7 million to a ritualist for the sake of rituals.
Naija News understands that the 60-year old mother identified as Rukayat Abodunde was abducted by two gunmen who came to her home in Ayetoro Street in Ondo town, pretending to have come to buy fish from her.
Rukayat Abodunde was abducted around 10 pm. Report reaching Naija News reveals that the alleged ritualist that is believed to be on the run, resurfaced at the house of the son of Rukayat to demand a refund after Rukayat’s hunchback was discovered to be useless to him because her hunchback was not a natural cause but was caused by an accident.
The Police are also on the trail of the suspected ritualists, who are believed to have targeted the 60-year-old victim, because of her hunchback.
The police spokesman in the state, Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident where he said the incident was reported at the police station by one Omotola Oseyemi and detectives swung into action to ensure the release of the abducted woman.
Joseph said they interrogated the people in the area but members of the family were not showing enough interest in the disappearance of the woman.
The police spokesman said the case was still being investigated to unravel those behind the dastardly act.
