Four persons suspected to be kidnappers were arrested on Friday by the Western Nigeria Security Network, better known as Amotekun, in Ekiti state.
Corps commander, Joe Komolafe who confirmed the arrest, said the suspects were apprehended in Eda Oniyo, Ilejemeje local government area (LGA) of the state during a routine patrol by the security outfit.
The arrested persons, identified as Abubakar Sule, Sheu Usman, Abubakar Babangida, and Sheu Mamuda, reportedly confessed to the crime.
He said, “Our men on routine patrol intercepted these four persons suspected to be kidnappers on Friday morning. They claimed to have come from Sokoto state. Upon questioning, they said they were heading to Akungba Akoko in Ondo state but with no clear mission here.
“They told us they were coming from Ilorin, Kwara state capital, on a motorcycle after they were brought in from Sokoto state in a truck a few days ago.
“What we found on them clearly gave them away as suspected kidnappers, and also with their confession.”
Komolafe added that the suspects would be handed over to the police.
