THE acting Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, on Tuesday, paraded a notorious suspected kidnapper, Umar who was responsible for the kidnap and murder of the Obi of Ubulu-Uku, Obi Edward Akaeze Ofulue 111 of Ubulu/Uku kingdom in Delta State.
Parading him alongside eight other suspects, at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, the IGP, Idris, said Mohammed was arrested on July 19 at about 2:30 p.m by a team of Special Anti-Kidnapping Operatives at Abraka market area of Asaba, in Delta State.
He, therefore, sought for more information from Nigerians, which could lead to the arrest of notorious armed robbers and kidnappers within their respective communities, saying the era of giving police an information and being compromised had gone in Nigeria.
It will be recalled that the paramount ruler was kidnapped on January 5, 2016 on Obior/Igbodo link road in Delta State. He was later killed by his abductors.
The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Don Awunah, who paraded the suspects on behalf of the IGP, said police had intensified more efforts to apprehend other culprits to make them face justice in due course.
He explained that Umar was one of the wanted kidnappers who killed the paramount ruler, pointing out that one of the victims that escaped from the kidnappers’ identified him during the investigations.
