A suspected member of a kidnap gang has been arrested by men of the Ogun state police command after they raided the hideout of kidnappers who have been terrorizing the Kara Bridge end of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Saturday, September  24.

A statement released by SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, spokesperson of the state police command, says men of the Command took the battle to the doorstep of the hoodlums following a report lodged at Warewa Police divisional headquarters by a commercial driver, who reported that while he was coming from Ilorin in his Ford car with registration number LRN 596 ZY, loaded with seven passengers, on getting to the long bridge, there was traffic so he drove through the untarred access road beside the bridge.

The commercial driver said while driving through the said access road, they were attacked by some unknown gunmen which made all the passengers run in different directions in the nearby bush. He said when they all regrouped to continue their journey, it was discovered that one of the passengers by the name of Alhaji Sheu Anafi from Okeleele area of Ilorin had been abducted by the hoodlums.

”Upon the report, the Divisional Police Officer Warewa division, CSP Abdul Fatai Ogunsanya led a joint operation consisting of men of the command’s tactical teams, local Vigilantes, so safe corps, and OPC men for bush combing in search of the abducted man.

Their efforts yielded positive results when the hideout of the kidnappers was located and the security operatives engaged them in a gun battle.
