Operatives of the Ogun Police Command have arrested two members of an alleged notorious kidnap syndicate, Jato Abu Bello and Muhammad Suleiman.

The police said the suspects, who were arrested on Saturday, were responsible for a series of kidnap cases in recent times including the abduction of two siblings last week in the Ayetoro area of the state.

The spokesman of the police, Abimbola Oyeyemi, told newsmen on Sunday that the suspects were arrested following painstaking technical and intelligence-based investigation by the SP Taiwo Opadiran-led anti-kidnapping unit.

He said the operatives busted the suspects’ hideout at Rounder area of Abeokuta in the course of its investigation.

He said, “Having located the hideout, the anti-kidnapping operatives, in conjunction with men of Ilupeju and Lafenwa divisions, stormed the place where two amongst the kidnappers were arrested.”

According to him, the suspects have confessed to being the gang that kidnapped one Ajibola Salimot Adejoke who they traced and abducted in her house at Oke Ode area, off Ayetoro road, Abeokuta on February 17, 2022.

He added that the suspects also kidnapped one Victoria Oladoyin on February 26, 2022 at Aboba area of Sodeke Titun, Abeokuta.

The police spokesman explained that on March 8, 2022, the duo and their gang abducted two siblings – Esther Kehinde and David Kehinde – at Ayetoro.

“Some of the victims have identified the suspects as their abductors,” he said.

Oyeyemi quoted the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, as commending his men for their resilience and determination in fishing out the suspects, and directed that other members of the syndicate must be hunted down and brought to book
