Two notorious kidnappers, Jato Abu Bello and Muhammad Suleiman have been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command over their roles in series of kidnap cases in recent time.
The duo were said to be arrested in the early hours of Saturday, 12 March, 2022 following a painstaking technical and intelligence based investigation embarked upon by the SP Taiwo Opadiran-led anti-kidnapping unit which led the operatives to the suspects’ hideout at Rounder area of Abeokuta.
According to the command’s spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, having located the hideout, the anti-kidnapping operatives in conjunction with men of Ilupeju and Lafenwa divisions stormed the place where two among the kidnappers were arrested.
“The suspects have confessed been the gang that kidnapped one Ajibola Salimot Adejoke whom they traced and abducted in her house at Oke Ode area, off Ayetoro road, Abeokuta on the 17th of February 2022.
“They also kidnapped one Victoria Oladoyin on the 26th of February, 2022 at Aboba area of Sodeke Titun Abeokuta.
“Also, on the 8th of March, 2022, the duo and their gang abducted two siblings namely; Esther Kehinde and David Kehinde at Ayetoro. Some of the victims have identified the suspects as their abductors,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, who commended his men for their resilience and determination in fishing out the suspects had directed that other members of the syndicate must be hunted for and brought to book.
