Olu Falae’s Abductors Bag Life Sentence


By Sadiq Umar – An High Court Akure on Monday sentenced to life imprisonment the abductors of Afenifere chieftain and former Secretary to the Federal Government Olu Falae.

The Court sitting in Akure, Ondo State capital found the four men who are Fulani herdsmen, guilty of crime of kidnapping and were therefore sentenced to life imprisonment.

It would be recalled that some armed men on Monday September 21, 2016 stormed Falae’s Ilado farm along Igbatoro Road, in Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo state and abducted the front-line politician and demanded for huge ransom.

He was rescued days after by the police after paying about N4million ransom to the kidnappers subsequently arrested and charged.

His security officer was also killed by the armed bandit in the same farm.
