A thirteen-year-old boy, Odunayo Sunday, who was kidnapped in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital has “miraculously” escaped from suspected ritualists in neighbouring Ondo State.

The boy was found by a Good Samaritan at Ugbe Akoko in Akoko Northeast Local Government Area of Ondo State from where he made his way back home to the waiting arms of his guardian and neighbours.

Sunday was kidnapped at Moferere area of Ado Ekiti when he was hawking vegetable as two men inside a Sport Utility Vehicle beckoned on him pretending to buy the product from him.

Speaking on Wednesday on his two-day ordeal in the hands of his abductors, Sunday said he never knew such a fate could befall him as he never suspected them of having such intention against him.
