Detectives from Force Headquarters, Abuja in collaboration with the Delta State Police Command have arrested a Cameroonian and two Nigerians for kidnapping.
One of the suspects is based in Kaduna while the other two are from Kogi and Cameroon.
The three-man gang is linked with the kidnapping of residents of Orerokpe, Sapele, and Warri axis in Delta State.
Intelligence gathered on kidnapping incidents in the Warri axis pointed accusing fingers at Yakubu Ya’u, a 20-year-old Kaduna resident who often comes to Oha and Ughwagba communities in Okpe local government area of the state to kidnap his victims for ransom.
A sting operation by detectives from Force Headquarters, Abuja, and Operatives of Delta State Police Command led by the DPO of Orerokpe Division, DSP Paul Oboware trailed the suspect to his hideout in Warri where he was arrested.
When grilled, the suspect led the operatives to arrest two other members of the gang, Musa Yakubu, 25, from Kogi State, and Abdulahi Mohammed, 38, from Cameroun.
The gang was allegedly responsible for several kidnapping incidents in the Orerokpe, Sapele, and Warri axis of the state.
Some victims of the crime duly identified the suspects who led the detectives to Ughwagba where two pump action guns, one live cartridge, and one knife buried in a bush, were recovered by the police.
A release issued by the command’s spokesperson, Edafe Bright, said investigation into the matter had commenced as efforts to apprehend the fled members of the gang had been intensified.
