DETECTIVES in Ogun State Police Command have arrested two suspected kidnappers, Mohammed Abubakar, 42, and Clinton Niche, 18, while trying to collect ransom at Agbara area of the state.

  Police public relations officer in Ogun, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, made this known today in a statement in Ota.

  Oyeyemi said the suspects were arrested on October 3, following a report lodged at Agbara Area Command by one Stephen Ajibili, who reported that his seven-year-old son, Daniel Ajibili, had been kidnapped.

  He added that his son was abducted by unknown persons while he was sent on an errand by his mother about 11.20 a.m on the fateful day.

  Ajibili said that the abductors had called him and demanded for the sum of N1 million, if he wants his son released.

  “Consequently upon the report, the Acting Area Commander Agbara, CSP Kayode Shedrack, quickly mobilised his detectives to embark on technical and intelligence based investigation to unravel those behind the dastardly act.

  “The efforts of the detectives paid -off when the suspects who had directed the victim’s parents to drop the ransom money somewhere were ambushed and apprehended by the police detectives.

   “The suspects subsequently led the policemen to a bush where the innocent young boy was tied to a tree by his abductors.

  “On interrogation, the suspects informed the police that they are three in number, but the remaining member of their gang was the person watching over their victim while they came out to collect the ransom.

  “Having discovered that his two accomplices have been arrested, he took to flight immediately,” he stated.

  The Acting Commissioner of Police, DCP Abiodun Alamutu, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to anti-kidnapping section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for discreet investigation.

  He also directed that the fleeing member of the gang be hunted for and brought to justice within the shortest possible period.
