Two brothers — Meshak Felix (23) and Chinechirem Felix (23)– on Friday appeared before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly kidnapping a three-year-old baby and demanding a N600,000 ransom.

The accused persons are facing a three-count charge of conspiracy, kidnap and stealing to which they pleaded not guilty.

According to Police Prosecutor Julius Babatope, the accused committed the offences on June 2 at Dog Kennel at Railway Compound, Ebute Meta, Yaba.

Babatope alleged that the accused kidnapped and detained the child and threatened to kill him if the ransom was not paid.

“The duo had threatened to kill the boy if his parents failed to meet their demand,” he said.

He said the accused also stole two Nokia phones valued at N8,000 from the complainant, Mrs Mary Chidi.

The offences contravened Sections 2 and 3 of the Kidnapping Prohibition Law of Lagos State, 2017 and Section 390 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015. (Revised)

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs A.O. Ajibade, in her ruling, granted the accused a bail of N500,000 each with two sureties each in like sum and adjourned the case until July 23. (NAN)
