The suspects

Two kingpins of a kidnap ring, are currently telling men of the Nigerian Police Force (NPF), details of their operations including how they slaughtered a medical doctor, his friend and an associate after collecting a staggering N7.5million ransom.

It is part of another successful operation by the nemesis of high-level crimes in Nigeria, Abba Kyari, who leads the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) set up by the office of the Inspector General of Police (IG).

The two suspects were said to have abducted a Medical Doctor, Audu Benedict, his son and one of his associates in Katsina-ala LGA, Benue State while travelling from Taraba State to Abuja on 10th March, 2019.

Named as Henry Terkula Gwa ‘m’ 25yrs from Donga LGA of Benue State and Terhile Tsavbe, ‘m’ 30yrs from Gawa village, Katsina-ala LGA of Benue State, they were said to have been arrested on the 6th and 11th June, 2020 following intense search for the victims and manhunt for the perpetrators by the Police team.

The police revealed that the criminal gang collected N7.5million as ransom from the families of the victims as condition for their release, including forcing the late medical doctor to issue them a cheque of N5million, which they cashed in a commercial bank in Gboko town, Benue State. Subsequently, the suspects killed the three (3) victims and had them buried in a shallow grave at Gawa in Katsina-ala LGA of Benue State.

Frank Mba, police spokesman, who spoke on the issue, said: “While effort is being intensified to arrest other suspects still at large, the police team is on the verge of exhuming the remains of the slain victims.

“In a similar development, the Police have arrested 25 other criminal suspects for their involvements in a varying cases of kidnapping, armed robbery and illegal possession of prohibited firearms currently under investigations.

“The suspects are members of high-profile criminal gangs terrorizing communities and major highways of the North-Central and North-West States of the country. Exhibits recovered by the police team from the suspects include: 6 AK47 rifles, three (3) locally fabricated pump action guns, One (1) locally fabricated pistol, 2 dane guns, 55 rounds of AK47 ammunition, 4 empty magazines, one (1) laptop computer and One (1) Toyota Corolla Car with REG No. MKD 13 RC.  All the suspects will be charged to court at the conclusion of investigations.

Mba, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), said the Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, who assured Nigerians that the battle against criminal elements in the country was a continuous one, called for all hands to be on deck towards decisive victory and reclaiming of the public space from the criminal elements.
