ABEOKUTA - The Ogun state Police Command has paraded four suspected kidnappers who abducted the Vice Chairman of Remo North local government caretaker committee, Hon. Soniyi Taiwo, few days to his swearing-in ceremony. 

The victim was abducted along Fidiwo-Ipara road in Remo local government area of the State on January 10th.

The suspects identified as Muhammad Abdullah, 25, Ibrahim Diko, 20, Gambo Abduallah 25, and Mohammed Sulaimon, 23, all met their waterloo after one of them was trailed to Idi-Ayunre in Ibadan, Oyo State.

Addressing journalists at the police headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, the Police Commissioner, Kenneth Ebrimson said that the kidnap suspects were arrested after technical and forensic investigation as well as pressure from the police was mounted to comb the road.

"On receiving the information, I directed the DPO Isara division to work in conjunction with other tactical teams in the command to ensure the rescue of the victim and in compliance with my directive, the team swung into action and embarked on technical and forensic investigation as a result of which the kidnappers were quickly geo-located.

“Having realised that the police are closing in on them, the hoodlums released their victim but three members of the gang were subsequently apprehended as a result of intense combing of the bush where they were traced to. Their arrest led to the arrest of the fourth suspect who was tracked to Idi-Ayunre in Ibadan.”

Meanwhile, CP Ebrimson has warned criminals to relocate from the state, adding that their refusal would lead to their total destruction, as the command would be taking the battle to their door step.
