The family of Aboderin in Kudeti area of Ibadan has said that the late gang leader of the notorious group, One Million Boys, Abiola Ebila and his cohorts did not keep any kidnap victim in their compound.
The family’s reaction came after Tribune newspaper quoted unnamed sources on how Ebila and the ‘One Million Boys’ group kept kidnap victims in one room at Aboderin Compound, Kudeti, Ibadan while demanding N1 million as ransom.
The family, through their lawyer, Prince Adediran Adeyemo, in a letter issued to the newspaper noted that the family head, Mogaji Olatunde Aboderin, expressed shock and distraught when bombarded with phone calls from members of the family and the public expressing displeasure on the usage of their compound as a den for kidnappers and cultists alike.
The Mogaji said the family remained one of the most respected families in Ibadan land and has produced great Ibadan chiefs, politicians, industrialists and men of God.
The Aboderin family concluded that their compound is renowned for Christian values, not kidnapping or any form of criminality.
