Every day for the thief one day for the owner. This cliché came to play in Lagos Saturday as the police declared that one of the most wanted kidnappers was in their net.
He was said to have billions of naira from kidnapping to sustain his opulence lifestyle.
The police said the Inspector-General’s Intelligence Response Team (IRT) led by ACP Abba Kyari arrested one of the most wanted suspected kidnappers in palatial Magodo home in Lagos.
Kyari, who confirmed the arrest, said that the suspect was arrested through a planned assault.
“IRT headquarters in Abuja is celebrating the arrest of the most wanted brilliant and notorious high profile kidnapper in Nigeria.
“He has collected several billions of naira as ransom in the last seven years as the kingpin of kidnappers.
“He was arrested at about 1.00p.m on Saturday in his residence in Magodo Estate, Lagos,” Kyari said.
He commended the Force Headquarters for mobilising the resources to go all out against the “richest and most notorious kidnapper” in the history of Nigeria.
Kyari said the Inspector-General had directed that the suspect should be paraded before newsmen on Sunday in Lagos.
