Recalling how Alli-Balogun was killed, Alex said:
“I came to Lagos and joined kidnapping in 2016.
One of my friends, Austin, invited me to join. We worked with Stone, commander of our camp. Stone works under Ossy. Ossy is our overall boss. We have 38 rifles in our camp, at Ajegunle area of Ikorodu. We were seven who went for the operation. We divided ourselves into three.
“The first group was in the front, second in the middle and the third, behind. It was people in the front that killed people. My gang leader, American, was the person that killed the television presenter.
He said that he flagged the woman down; she was with a man and two children in her car. The man ran out of the car with the children. The woman attempted to drive off the car, he shot her. He abducted her daughter. He said the woman almost killed him before he shot her. “Stone, who is the leader of the camp, was not happy with the killing.
We kidnapped six persons, including the woman’s two-year-old daughter. A ransom of N2 million was paid before they were released.
A man, who claimed to be the woman’s husband, paid us N500,000 before we released the two-year old girl. “The other victims paid us N1.5 million.
