“We support the govt in fighting criminals like him” – Family deny ties with arrested Ekiti kidnapper
Notorious kidnapper, Bunmi Ogunremi, has been denied by his family, who said they are in support of the government in their fight against criminals like him.
This was made known in a recently released statement by the head of the family.
It can be recalled that a few days back, the 49-year-old Bunmi confessed to belonging to a criminal group that orchestrated the kidnap of popular oil businessman, Alhaji Suleiman Akinbami, earlier this year.
In his confession, the arrested kidnapper confirmed that he also kidnapped his own mother-in-law before being arrested by security agents.
The entire Ogunremi family has now reacted to the shocking revelations, stating that they have cut personal ties with him since he served over 14 years in Nigerian Prisons (Nigerian Correctional Centre) for the offence of Armed Robbery.
The statement which was signed by the head of the family also reiterated their commitment to assisting the government weed out any criminal element from the Ekiti state. It read;
“The entire Ogunremi family of Ado-Ekiti hereby once again declare their solemn and unflinching support and loyalty to the entire public as well as the government in enforcing the full weight of the law against him and other perpetrators involved herein, we further pledge to give any assistance to the security agencies if the need arises.”
