Two suspected kidnappers have been arrested by the personnel of the Ondo State Security outfit codenamed Amotekun after a failed abduction of three church travellers during the Easter festivity.

The suspects were arrested along Ifira-Akoko-Idoani road in Ose council area of the state.

Vanguard gathered that the three travellers rescued by Amotekun personnel include Adewale Adebisi, 52; Miss Ahan Mary, 21 and Miss Ladi Bude, 23.

They were reportedly kidnapped at gunpoint while travelling with other church members from Benue State to Akure, the Ondo State capital.

Reports had it that the unsuspecting driver of the bus decided to stop on the highway after they were flagged down by the abductors, who pretended to be motorists whose vehicle had a mechanical fault.

The victims, it was gathered, were marched into the forest thereafter while some motorists, who watched from a distance on the highway and suspected that the three persons might have been kidnapped, telephoned the security outfit.

The personnel of the corps reportedly stormed the forest where they rescued the three victims and arrested two suspects.

Contacted, the state commander of Amotekun, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, confirmed the arrest of the two suspects and the rescue of the three travellers.

Adeleye said they were rescued by his men after combing the forest where they were abducted.

According to him, “We thank God for the release of the victims though our men are still on ground combing the bush. Our personnel responded immediately after the distress call and were able to rescue the victims.

3 army impostors, police officer arrested in Delta

In a related development, troops of the 63 Brigade, Asaba, Delta State, have arrested three army impostors, a serving mobile police officer and one other person, along the Kwale-Ogwashi-Uku Road for allegedly harassing commuters with “the intention of kidnapping or robbing their victims.”

Assistant Director, Army Public Relations of the brigade, Captain George Okupe, who disclosed this in a statement, said the “shabbily dressed” serving mobile police officer and the others were “inside a registered dual coloured (ash and blue) Peugeot 608 saloon car with number plate LND 436 EX LAGOS” when they were apprehended.

The statement listed the suspects to include “Sergeant Stanley Okolukw Agwuchi (F/NO: 505161) serving in Ogwashi Police Division; Mr Augustine Emmanuel, from Ejeme Aniogor in Aniocha South of Delta State, who claimed to be a photographer and Mr Nwaka Onyeachonen from Ejeme Aniogor parading himself as a sergeant, age 36 years.

Others, according to the statement, were “Mr Uzamaka Julius impersonating a major with a fake Army identity card, age 29 years from Obowu in Imo State and Mr James Benefit from Abia State, parading himself as a private soldier, age 28 years.”

During preliminary investigation, it was discovered that Mr Ogodo is a deserter private soldier while Mr Onovughegor is suspected to be an internet fraudster.

Abutu said the police have commenced a serious manhunt and investigation to unravel the identities and apprehend those behind the abduction of Mr Agbanigo.

Save us from Police, land grabbers’ menace, Ogun community begs IGP, Gov Abiodun

Residents of Feru community in Ado-Odo/Ota area of Ogun State have cried out to the Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, and Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State to save them from the activities of land grabbers and invasion of their land by armed policemen.

The residents also alleged that the menace of the two bodies had brought untold hardship on them as the road linking their community with neighbouring villages has been severely damaged by land grabbing activities.

The community, through their representatives during a press conference in Egbeda area of Lagos, alleged that the land is owned by Onigbeyin and Odunfa families but armed Policemen have occupied the place in the last 90 days.

Secretary to Onigbeyin and Odunfa Families, Mr Agboola Bashiru, said on January 20, 2021, the road linking Feru community with Lafenwa, Itele and some parts of Lagos, was maliciously vandalised by some criminals and suspected land grabbers with the help of policemen.

He said: “For the past 90 days, our community has been under siege from some hoodlums led by some land grabbers. These people emerged out of the blues, without any conscience, to lay claim to some 166 acres of land in Feru village, which in fact, belongs to the families of Onigbeyin and Odunfa.

“We later discovered that the purported 166 acres were dubiously sold by criminal elements through one Adeoye to a popular church for a paltry sum of N74,700,000. All documents evidencing the transaction are not only fake but fraudulently forged to execute their sinister motive,”

This is why community policing should be embraced by the Nigerian government. ESN would have been accepted by the government if it was not affiliated to Nnadim Kanu.

Good one from Amotekun.









bampeh is cool with this

By my assessment Amotekun hasn't lived up to expectations considering the hype that heralded its creation.

I'm sorry i have to say this... maybe because I'm more concerned about a saner society

If Amotekun now do the work of Police, we should question the political reasons for its establishment, even if it doesn't prove any valid argument

To secure the ruling class from the chaos loading? Trust me, next thing to happen in Nigeria won't be Military rule. While we can also ask if
Amotekun is just some power tussle and pawns in this political war that may or may not have good intentions of Nigerians Africans at large.

Spare me "North is this, not that" Do those weak, feeble, starving Northern kids deserve what they are looking like? Then if you suggest that, you may as well suggest Europeans and Americans should look at us same way... we deserve our leaders..

See, If Amotekun is the real deal... Then Amotekun lines Should be drawn and made effective not all these "wannabe works" they are doing around. BTW, Good Job!
