    He was found in a barn in Brampton. Looks like a scary barn!
    Boy abducted over stepbrother’s drug debt was found in Brampton barn

    I hope he is embraced with endless love. I pray he continues on his way to what seems a very bright, enriching, fulfilling life. I hope everyone involved is punished to the fullest extent of the “Canadian” law.....

    Impressive work by all agencies involved in this case! Wow, I think I may have a little crush on Chief Saunders. He ain't playin', y'all!

    So, so thrilled that this young man was located and reunited with his family so quickly! My heart is little less frozen today.

    Snippets, rbbm.
    WARMINGTON: Time to catch Shammah Jolayemi’s abductors
    ''Supt. Steve Watts told the kidnappers what to do and they did it.

    “We would encourage those who took Shammah to drop him off in a safe place,” the head of Toronto Police’s organized crime unit told the media.

    Message sent, loud and clear.

    They listened.''

    ''The Amber Alert was cancelled, Shammah Jolayemi was taken to hospital and a family holed up in a small townhouse in the Driftwood neighbourhood near Jane and Finch rejoiced''.

    ''Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders told reporters at a briefing Friday morning the teen was found safe, but “dishevelled.”

    “He’s the most watched person in Toronto right now and it would be foolish to go anywhere near him,” Saunders said.


    He provided no details on how the teen was located.''

    ''The Junior Achievement in the Jane-Finch community issued a press release it was relieved Shammah was found safe.

    “Shammah is a shining star in our class, a gem,” said spokesman Rita Smith. “He had perfect attendance, shows up for all of the hardest work projects, and always has an insightful question to ask.”


    This story, however, is not over.''

    ''Stayed tuned because Watts and his team are on it.

    They got Shammah back. Now it’s time to catch the guys who kidnapped him.''

    More..
    Emergency wire-taps helped locate Shammah Jolayemi: source
    ''Emergency wire-taps obtained by Toronto Police enabled officers to rescue kidnap victim Shammah Jolayemi, a source told the Toronto Sun.

    “Those wiretaps tracing communications between the kidnappers and the family helped officers pinpoint the victim’s location,” the source told the Sun''.

    ''The family of the victim’s stepbrother, Olalekan Osikoya, was warned that “their lives were in jeopardy” after he pilfered 92 kilos of cocaine, worth an estimated $4 million to $5 million last summer, the source said.''

    ''Osikoya has an almost non-existent criminal record. Last month, he received a conditional discharge on allegations he ripped off $6,000 by impersonating people to obtain additional credit and bank card to make purchases and withdrawals. He provided full restitution as part of the resolution.''

    Spooky looking place, imo.
    Boy abducted over stepbrother’s drug debt was found in Brampton barn
    Police sources confirm to CP24 that he was found in a barn off 10869 Heritage Road near Wanless Drive, in the westernmost section of Brampton, on Thursday night.

    ''Halton paramedics took the boy to Sick Kids Hospital for a checkup, where he was met by his mother.

    At a news conference on Friday morning, Saunders told reporters that the boy was “disheveled” when officers found him but would not elaborate on his condition.

    The police chief would not say what, if any, injuries the boy sustained but confirmed he is now with his parents and is doing “very well” following the “traumatic” experience.''

    Isn't it though? The stuff of nightmares - or a horror movie. :eek:

    I am ecstatic that this young man was safely recovered but I have some serious concerns about his safety, as well as his family, going forward. I sure hope LE is able to find the perpetrators and that they're locked up for a very, very long time. MOO

    so what happens now with this family? thank goodness this boy came home safe, but that 4-5 million dollar debt is still out there and is likely not going away any time soon. my guess is the kidnappers were hired thugs, and not actually the ones looking for repayment. if they can catch and find the kidnappers, there's always someone higher up on the food chain that will be looking to get that money back...

    That would make sense. Hired guys who bailed when the Amber Alert went out. It became more risky than they wanted to deal with. So they dropped him at a safe location like the cops asked for.

    Saunders to provide update on investigation into boy who was kidnapped over stepbrother's alleged drug debt
    ''Toronto police will be providing an update this morning on the investigation into the abduction of a 14-year-old boy who was held against his will for nearly 40 hours and ultimately found safe near an abandoned barn in Brampton.

    The teen was on his way to school on the morning of March 4 when he was forced into a dark-coloured Jeep on Driftwood Avenue in North York.''

    ''Saunders will be providing an update on the case at Toronto police headquarters at 10:30 a.m. and CP24 will be live-streaming the news conference.''

    Accused in drug-related kidnapping free on bail
    Accused in drug-related kidnapping free on bail
    Sam Pazzano Courts Bureau
    ''An alleged kidnapper of a teenaged boy who was a high-profile pawn in an enormous drug-ripoff is now free on $100,000 bail, partially thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Samir Abdelgadir was released on a house arrest with GPS ankle monitoring at his mother’s Mississauga home in a decision released by Justice Carol Brewer on June 9.

    Abdelgadir, 39, who is a McMaster University business graduate with no prior criminal convictions, worked as a manager at a restaurant where his mom is a partner.''

    ''Jolayemi’s half-brother, Olalekan Osikoya, worked as a drug and firearms courier for a mid-level Toronto drug dealer for $10,000 a month starting in the summer of 2018, police sources told the Sun.

    Osikoya was upset because he wasn’t paid on time, or not at all, by the dealer, who dismissed his complaints. Osikoya conspired with another drug courier to steal a drug shipment last summer, a source told the Sun.''
