The trial of four suspects in the kidnap of the traditional ruler of Iba Town, Oba Goriola Oseni, began yesterday at a Lagos State High Court, Igbosere, with a revelation from two witnesses that the abductors allegedly obtained two ransoms worth N15.1million.

First to fourth defendants Duba Furejo, Ododowo Isaiah, Reuben Anthony and Yerin Fresh were arraigned for the alleged offence before Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo on October 24.

They are standing trial on an eight-count charge bordering on conspiracy, murder, attempted murder, robbery, armed robbery, felony and kidnapping preferred against them by the Lagos State government.

At the commencement of proceedings, Lagos State Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice Adeniji Kazeem (SAN), who led a team of counsel for the state, obtained leave of court to exclude the public from the trial.

In an oral application, Kazeem alleged that the defendants were likely part of a criminal enterprise and that it would serve the interest of justice, as well as, the safety of the witnesses for the matter to be closed to the public.
