Also paraded was one Ayo Samuel, a 63-year-old dismissed policeman, who confessed to be a member of the kidnap gang in the state. Another suspect was one Mubarak Bello, in Igbara-Ode-Ekiti, who demanded N50,000 ransom for a kidnapped lady, Abdullahi Shekina, on November 8, 2021.

A woman, Nana Sule, who faked her kidnapping on November 20, 2021, along Ifaki/Oye-Ekiti road with some passengers was also arrested and paraded.

The police said she called her husband that kidnappers were demanding N50,000 ransom, but it was  later discovered that she faked her  kidnap to get money from her relatives.
