Abductors who kidnapped the twin children of popular Ibadan-based Muslim cleric, Sheik Taofeeq Akeugbagold, have released them after eight days in captivity.
Recall that on Saturday, April 25, some gunmen stormed Sheik Taofeeq Akeugbagold’s home in Ibadan, Oyo state and abducted his twin children, whom he had after 12 years of childlessness. They contacted Taofeeq asking for £100, 000 ransom.
Announcing the release of his children via his Facebook page this morning, Sheikh said:
“ALHAMDULILLAH! AT 5.30 AM OF SUNDAY 3RD MAY, MY ABDUCTED TWIN KIDS ARE RELEASED TO ME BESIDE A BUSH AFTER 8DAYS IN AN UNKNOWN LAND. THANKS TO U ALL FOR FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND SUPPORT, JAZAKUMULLAHU KHAIRAN. ABERE MI BO SINU OKUN, OLOUN YO PADA FUN MI.”
