The suspects identified as Abdul-Raman Umar, Falalu Abubakar, Danjuma Bako, Idris Lawal and Fauziya Falalu were arrested on Friday July 9 following a complaint lodged at the Ogere divisional police headquarters by the victim’s father, Riliwan Mohammed.

 

The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi who confirmed their arrest on Sunday July 11, said; 

 

“The suspects were arrested following a complaint lodged at the Ogere divisional headquarters by one Riliwan Mohammed, who reported that he left his wife and three children at home at about 12 noon, only for him to receive a phone call from a strange number that his eight years old son had been abducted.

 “He reported further that the caller demanded N3.5m as ransom if he wanted to see the boy alive.

“Upon the report, the DPO, Ogere division, CSP Abiodun Ayinde, quickly mobilised his crack detectives to go after the hoodlums.

 “The detectives embarked on technical and intelligence-based investigation, which led them to the hideout of the suspects, where they were arrested and the victim rescued unhurt.”

 

The state Commissioner of Police, Edward  Ajogun, had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the anti-kidnapping unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.
