A 13-year-old boy, Odunayo Sunday, who was allegedly kidnapped in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital, has escaped from suspected ritualists in Ondo State.

The boy was found by a good Samaritan at Ugbe Akoko in Akoko Northeast Local Government, from where he headed for home.

Sunday was abducted at Moferere in Ado-Ekiti when he was hawking vegetable. Two men inside a sport utility vehicle beckoned to him, pretending to buy the item.

A source said the men bought vegetable worth N100 and gave the boy N1,000, expecting a balance of N900.

The source said the teenager looked for balance without success, after which the men beckoned to him. He entered their vehicle and they sped off.

Sunday said: “They took me to a bush where their members were waiting. But a disagreement ensued among them.

“I was very afraid. I prayed to God to save me from the ritual killers. God answered my prayers and they ordered me to leave. I ran as fast as I could.”

The Vicar in charge of the Church of Resurrection (Anglican Communion), Moferere, Ado-Ekiti, Rev. Olufemi Adebule, confirmed the incident. He appealed to parents and guardians to be vigilant, as kidnappers are on the prowl.
