The Ogun State Police Command paraded some suspected kidnappers arrested within the state recently on Monday.

The new Police Commissioner, Lanre Bankole, during his inaugural press conference at the Eleweran Police Headquarters, Abeokuta, introduced the suspects to journalists.

Among the suspects were Mohammed Bentua (25 years old) and Aminu Ibrahim (32 years old), who were arrested on October 3 in the Bode-Olude area of ​​Abeokuta.

The Police Commissioner explained that a certain Saliu Hammed had been kidnapped from his home in Temidire Opete by some gunmen, who demanded a ransom of N3 million.

Bode-Olude police, in collaboration with vigilantes, hunters and So-safe-corps men, were said to have gone after the kidnappers and successfully rescued the victim, arresting the two suspects.

It was reported that “a single-barreled short gun, a long rope, an empty cartridge and an Opel car” were recovered from the suspects.

Similarly, the police, around 3:40 am, detained an Oseni Abiola in connection with the kidnapping of a youth leader.

The youth leader, Olamilekan Olawale, was ambushed in Alapako, along the Lagos-Ibadan highway and got kidnapped.

The “kidnappers” had contacted the victim’s family and demanded N6 million for Olawale’s release.

However, on October 8, Oseni Abiola was arrested with the victim’s Lexus 330 while searching for a buyer.

“The victim was later rescued, while other members of the gang are being hunted for possible arrest,” Bankole said.

The PC assured Ogun residents that their safety will be guaranteed at all times, saying: “We are deploying everything in our Arsenal to keep crime and criminality to a minimum in Ogun State.”

To fulfill his promise to make Ogun the safest state in Nigeria, Bankole stated that he had met with all the area commanders and tactical squad commanders with the mandate that everyone should go out and make the state less conducive to the criminals and their sponsors.
