Lagos police arrest five kidnappers

Policemen attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) Ikejahave arrested a five-man gang of suspected kidnappers in the Berger area of La­gos.

The gang, led by 32-year-old Edet Ekuno, also has Chukwudi Dickson, Sun­day Shamiga, Hope Edet and Isaiah Unuabon as members. They were ar­rested while trying to kid­nap a yet-to-be-identified victim in a hotel.


Under interrogation, the gang confessed to a series of robbery and kidnapping in Lagos and Akwa Ibom states.

Two locally-made pis­tols and eighteen live car­tridges were recovered from the suspects. How­ever, investigation into the matter is still ongoing.

In a similar develop­ment, policemen attached to the Gowon Estate divi­sion have arrested three hoodlums for robbery.

The suspects, Matthew Soeze, Johnson Olaide and Prosper Obi, were ar­rested following a tip-off.

It was alleged that the suspects barricaded the access road to Gowon Es­tate and subsequently robbed passers-by.
