The kidnap and robbery suspects

Members of a gang of alleged kidnappers, said to have participated in the abduction and killing of a Portuguese national attached to Dangote Group, were on Thursday, paraded by the police in Abuja, after they were reportedly rounded up from their various hide out in the bush along Abuja-Benue-Kogi road.

A statement issued by the police, through their spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, described the alleged hoodlums as quite dangerous, adding that it took the combined effort of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), that handled some of the toughest hauls in the criminal underworld, including the capture of the alleged kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike with the Kogi State Police Command to make the big catch.

The statement said: “The implementation of Security Arrangement directed by Inspector General of Police, IGP Ibrahim K. Idris NPM, mni, for the Christmas and New Year festivity period and beyond has been yielding positive results.

“In order to add new impetus to the fight against kidnapping, armed robbery and other violent crimes in Kogi State, the Inspector General of Police has deployed the IGP intelligence Response Team responsible for the arrest of kidnap for ransom kingpin, Evans and his gang and killing of Vampire during a gun duel between the police and gang; to team up with the personnel of Kogi State Command to expand the operation and ensure the arrest of all the suspects involved in various kidnap cases in the state.

“The IGP mandated the joint team to root out kidnappers in Kogi State and other contiguous states such as Edo, Benue, Kwara, Enugu and Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

“The IGP-Intelligence Response Team and Kogi State Police Command, working on actionable intelligence and in compliance with IGP’S directives to clamp down on highway robbers and kidnappers have arrested the gang responsible for the unfortunate kidnapping and killing of a Portuguese expatriate attached to Dangote Group and two (2) mobile policemen attached to him in Kogi State.

“The suspects mentioned below were apprehended in their various hideouts in the forest and other locations along the Abuja-Lokoja-kabba highways.
