Others Escapes As Police Arrests Suspected Kidnapper In Kogi

A suspected armed robber and kidnapper identified as Umaru Muhammed operating along Irunda-Isanlu, western axis of Kogi state has been arrested.

It was gathered that the 25-year-old who belongs to a suspected member of a gang responsible for series of violent crimes including armed robbery, and kidnapping around Isanlu and its environs was arrested on 3rd November.

The arrest was confirmed in a statement by the Police Public Relations Officer, (PPRO) DSP William Ovye Aya.

According to him, the arrest was made possible following a report received from a patriotic citizen that some suspected criminal elements were sighted around Isanlu axis.

He said:

“The Police operatives promptly swung into action, trailed the suspects to Koro Village, a boundary between Kogi and Kwara States where Umaru Muhammed was arrested, while other members of the gang escaped.”

Some of the items recovered from the suspect are one locally made gun using AK-47 rifle live ammunition, two AK-47 live ammunition, one single pump action barrel gun, one matchet, and dangerous local charms.

The suspect had since confessed to the crime and will soon be arraigned in court on completion of the investigation.
