Alhaja Modupe Idris, a business tycoon in Idumota and her sister, Alhaja
Risikat Laminu, told Vanguard: “I plotted to rob and kidnap my boss because she
was maltreating me.

It was one Emmanuel who organised four
others that assisted me in carrying out the robbery and kidnapping.
After the operation, Emmanuel and his gang gave me the Toyota SUV, smart
phone and one I-pad as my share of the loot.

“Immediately I
collected it, Ibrahim and I travelled to Jos, Plateau State to meet
Thankgod Husseni, who we earlier told about the operation. It was
Husseni that helped us sell our loot. He sold the SUV to one Brutus for
N400, 000.”

Solomon arranged the kidnap of Alhaja Idris, who employed him as her
driver. He had worked for her for two years.
To perfect his plans, he
connived with Emmanuel, a leader of an armed robbery gang, who is now
at large to assist him kidnap Alhaja Modupe.

It was gathered that
on September 30, Emma and his gang trailed Alhaja from her shop to
Surulere area in Lagos, at 9:30p.m., where they hit her vehicle from the
back feigning an accident.

Immediately her driver, Solomon
stopped the vehicle to check the extent of damage the accident caused,
the gang struck, robbed and kidnapped Alhaja Modupe, her sister, Alhaja
Laminu and her house maid, who were inside a black Toyota SUV with
number plate LSR871BM. They also collected N1.2 million, and other
valuables from her before taking them to a bush somewhere at Ijebu-Ode
area.

Briefing newsmen, the Commissioner of Police, Mr Fatai
Owoseni, said operatives of the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS, were
detailed to investigate the case after one Alhaji Wale Idris of Beyioku
