Police arrest wanted notorious Kogi kidnappers

Police have arrested two wanted notorious kidnappers in Kogi State.

The police had launched a manhunt on the duo of Suleiman Isah (24) and Musa Mohammed (31), both natives of Ankpa Local Government Area of Kogi State after they allegedly abducted one Alhaji Jibrin Idris, an Islamic scholar and the Chief Imam at Enabo in Ankpa district.

The gunmen later released the cleric after collecting undisclosed amount of money as ransom.

Subsequently, IGP Ibrahim Idris ordered a manhunt on the kidnappers by operatives of the Intelligence Response Team, IRT, led by courageous ACP Abba Kyari.

The kidnappers, after collecting the ransom, reportedly fled to Enugu State on sensing that IRT was trailing them.

However, after months of relentless efforts, the bandits met their waterloo at Ayinba Town Kogi State and 9th Mile, Enugu State, respectively.

It was further learnt that the suspects identified the other two gang members at large as Bashir and Mangal.

“The mobile phone used for the ransom negotiation by the kidnappers has been recovered, while efforts to arrest the remaining gang members at large are in progress,” a police source said.
