A 47-year-old woman Folasade Adesanyan has said that she ‘abducted’ a pregnant mentally deranged woman to take her baby after delivery.
Adesanyan said she took the action because she has only one child.
She was among six suspects paraded by the Ondo Amotekun Corps for kidnapping of persons in Odigbo local government area.
Adesanyan was accused of taking her victims to a herbalist identified as Musbau Jimoh.
She claimed to have wanted to heal the victim and take her baby as she wanted to have another child.
According to her: ” I saw a mad pregnant female and I wanted to heal the woman in order for her to deliver as I wanted to take the child.
“I am an herbalist. I wanted to take care of the mad woman’s child. I don’t know anything about kidnapping and I have not collected ransom before.”
Musbau said it was his first time of engaging in kidnapping.
Ondo Amotekun Commander, Akogun Adetunji Adeleye, said the suspects specialised in kidnapping and collecting ransom.
He said they would soon be charged to court.
