The suspect identified as Cyprian Ifanyi Nwanfo, who has been paraded by the Rivers State Police Command, revealed that their kidnap gang activities are controlled by their leader who has been identified to be one Prosper David.

Nwanfo goes on to reveal that Prosper would call to give them instructions and follow up details such as who to kidnap, how much should be collected as ransom and how it should be shared among members of the five-man gang.

In a bid to convince the police of his claims, Nwanfo had allegedly spoken with Proper with his phone while in police custody.

Further corroborating Nwanfo's claims, Prosper, who had not been aware of Nwanfo's demise, had reportedly told him to lie low due to the fact that the police were on their trail.

He added that their recent kidnap victim had been a female, and had allegedly paid N10m as ransom, with Prosper getting N3m as his share, and the cash routed through Proper’s wife.

Nwanfo's alleged confession said:

 “My name is Cyprian Ifanyi Nwanfo. I am 33 years old and from Abia State. Our Oga is the man in prison; his name is Prosper David.

“My friend Chuks Okozie, who is also in prison, introduced me into bunkering, before they introduced guns into our business. We took oath and were told we cannot quit; if we do, we will die.

“Tugo Man is the next to Prosper. He takes order from Prosper. When we kidnap, we share to Oga in prison. I got one million naira from the 10 million a female (names and profession withheld) we kidnapped paid this year.

“We give the share of our Oga to his wife at Abuloma end of Port Harcourt. We do not talk to the woman when she comes.”
