A notorious kidnaper identified as Innocent Emonyon, who is a member of a daredevil kidnap syndicate has told the Edo State Police Command how they abducted the PPRO of Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) in the state, Mrs Bridget Esene.
Emonyon, 40, who led his gang during the kidnap of the PPRO around Iqueniro area off Agbor Road, on Sunday morning, January 24, was arrested by operatives of the Anti Kidnapping and Cybercrime Unit of the police command.
The arrest of Emoyon who is said to be the professional driver of the gang, also led to the arrest of two Fulani herdsmen identified as Baguba Usman and Yusuf Ismaila, who were also arrested in connection with the abduction of Mrs Esene and other victims.
In his confessional statement, Emoyon said; “I was the one who drove the car used in kidnapping the Edo Immigration PPRO and sold her to some Fulani herdsmen in Ahor forest.
“We also kidnapped a businesswoman along Lucky Way in Benin city, where we took her to the same forest after we destroyed her two mobile phones,” he added.
When asked about the four other members of his gang, he said, “I heard they were arrested, and I quickly ran to Lagos so that they will not catch me; I was shocked how the police got me now.”
