A woman, Okereke Olufunmilayo, who was the Manager at a building materials store, has been arrested for allegedly kidnapping and killing her boss - a hotelier -, Otunba Abayomi Ajayi Smith, in Ogun State.

According to the Ogun State police spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the efforts of the SP Taiwo Opadiran-led anti-kidnapping team were successful in September this year, when they got wind of plans by the same gang to kidnap the wife and son of their slain victim, Smith.

He confessed further that it was Larry who described the location of the victim’s hotel and his other business outfits to him with instruction that if they succeeded in kidnapping the woman and her son, the two of them must be killed after collecting ransom in order not to leave any traces, just as they did to her husband two years ago,” 

His confession led to the arrest of Olufunmilayo and her husband. According to the Police PRO, Larry, was once a fraudster before he moved into full-time kidnapping business. Police investigation has revealed that Larry has two bank accounts, “where he used to keep money realized from his criminal activities.”
