Gunmen Kidnap Twins Children Of Popular Ibadan Muslim Cleric, Sheik Akeugbagold

Even with the ongoing 6am-7pm curfew imposed by the government of Oyo state to contain the spread of coronavirus in the State; gunmen have kidnapped the twins children of popular Ibadan based cleric, Sheik Taofeek Akeugbagold.

The twins-a boy and girl we gathered were kidnapped by the gunmen around 8pm on Saturday night at the residence of the cleric at Ojoo area of Ibadan.

The popular cleric who was the former Chairman of Oyo State Pilgrim Board (Muslim Wing) under former Governor of the State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi was said to have to studio to record a Ramadan lecture when the incidence occurred.

Corroborating this story, Sheik Akeugbagold took to his Facebook to call for the prayers of members of the public in ensuring the return of the twins.

According to his post on Facebook, Akeugbagold said that he was not around when the incidence happened, but confirmed that the twins-a boy and a girl have been kidnapped.

“My twins children have been kidnapped by gunmen in my residence in Ibadan. I went to a recording studio when the incidence occured.”

The cleric who also pleaded with the kidnappers to release his children said that their mother had been barren for 12 years before she eventually gave birth to the twins.
