Operatives of Ogun state police command on the 8th of April 2021, arrested three members of a kidnap syndicate, who have been terrorizing commuters along Lagos/Ibadan expressway for quite some time now.
The suspects, Nathaniel Jacob, male 24 years old from Nasarawa state, Isah Danladi male 22 years old from Kogi state and Abubakar Rabiu male 23 years old from Niger state, were arrested at Fidiwo area along Lagos Ibadan express way, following a tip-off from some hunters, who sighted the suspects in the bush where they were planning on how to strike along the express way.
The hunters quickly alerted the police, who rallied other stakeholders such as so safe corps, hunters group and stormed the Fidiwo Alapako bush.
On sighting the police, the suspects took to their heels in the bush, but luck ran out of the three and they were subsequently apprehended, while three others escaped with their arms.
On interrogation, the suspects confessed to have been in the bush for the past ten days, waiting for a convenient opportunity to strike. It took them that long because of heavy presence of policemen in the strech of the expressway. They stated further that, they are six in number that makes up the gang and that the escaped three are in possession of their arms.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the gang was responsible for the series of kidnappings along the express way. Recovered from them are cutlasses which they claimed were seized from farmers they saw in their farms.
Meanwhile, the commissioner of police CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the anti-kidnapping unit of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for discreet investigation.
The CP, also assured members of the public that, all the kidnap cases in the state will not go unresolved, as the command is working assiduously to bring the perpetrators to book.
