Osogbo -The Police in Osogbo on Friday arraigned a 35-year-old man, Joseph Iremi, before an Osogbo Chief Magistrates' Court for allegedly kidnapping one Wasiu Oyedele.

The Police Prosecutor, Inspt. Wilson Meriti, told the court that the accused and others at large conspired and committed the offence of kidnapping on Sept 18, at Iragbiji in Boripe Local Government Area.

Meriti added that the accused and his accomplices kidnapped Oyedele and demanded ransom from his father to secure his release.
