Five suspected kidnappers were nabbed by the police after abducting a housewife in Oghara.

When criminals get caught they first blame it on temptation and then unemployment, just like the five notorious kidnapping suspects arrested by the anti-robbery patrol team who swung into action following tip off of kidnapping incident in Delta State on January 8, 2016.

The suspected kidnappers according to the Delta State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Alkali Baba Usman they were four masked men who broke into the house of their victim at Oghara and abducted the wife after dispossessing the husband of about N115, 000.00.

They were caught with one locally made cut-to-size, single barrel gun, two cutlasses, one hammer and one battle axe.

It was further reported by Punch that the suspects wept deeply for freedom as they were paraded by the police.

Please, let us know; are they going to kill us? Is this the way I am going to end my life? I have a wife with four months old pregnancy. Who will take care of my children when I am no more? God, please take control and set us free from this temptation we find ourselves.

we have repented while in the police cell. We promise not to go into crime again and we shall help to curb crime in our area.

“As you can see, we are crying. That is to show that we regret our involvement in crime; we will never do it again. If we do it and they arrest us, they should kill us without wasting time.” Says Goodluck the gang boss.

Those who have money should take care of their family members so that they will not be willing to sell out their brothers and sisters to kidnappers.

“We have been in the kidnapping business for some time now; it is not easy. Friends and family members give us information as insiders. So, if you are rich, please help the needy in your midst. It will save you from a lot of things,” says another suspect.

If we can be set free, we volunteer to offer free security services to our community.

“They should give us security work of the community. We will assist police to stop crime and arrest all the bad boys. I am saying so because we know ourselves and will be able to call ourselves to order.

“This last kidnapping we organised was just to enable us to find something to do and celebrate the Yuletide, but as I said before, kidnapping is not an easy job. The lady we kidnapped could not give us better money before we were arrested,” the suspects further pleaded.

They will remain in police custody as investigation continue.
