Sheikh Taofeeq Akewugbagold, an Islamic cleric in Oyo State, said his twins have been kidnapped.
Akewugbagold, who disclosed this in a post on his Facebook page in the early hours of Sunday, said the two children, a male and a female, were kidnapped at gunpoint in Ibadan on Saturday night.
The twins children of Sheikh Taofeeq Akewugbagold kidnapped by gunmen.
He said they were kidnapped at his Ojoo residence in Ibadan, ten minutes after he left the house.
The cleric, however, called on people to assist him in prayers and begged the abductors to have mercy on the mother of the abducted twins.
“What a country! My twins children were kidnapped at gunpoint at my Ojoo residence Ibadan, around 8 pm Saturday, 10 minutes after I left my home for a recording lecture in a studio.
“Everybody should please, for Allah’s sake, assist me in prayer and beg the abductors to please be merciful with me especially their mother who was barren for 12 years. I’m begging, not flexing anything. This is their pictures, help share wide. Oh my God.”
However, Public Relations Officer of the State Police Command, Olugbenga Fadeyi confirmed the abduction.
“Yes, there was an abduction of Akewugbagold twins last night.
“Efforts intensified, arrests were made and currently assisting the police in investigations,” Fadeyi stated.
