The Zone 2 Police have arrested a three-man Kidnapping gang, and rescued their two victims. The suspects include Kwasi Samuel ‘m’ 64, Unnachukwu Monday ‘m’ 24, and Freeman Ekpebo ‘m’ 23.

 

The Zonal Command, with base in Onikan Lagos, and under the leadership of Assistant Inspector-General of Police, AIG Olatoye A. Durosinmi, made the revelation via a press statement e-signed by the Zonal Public Relations Officer, SP Ayuba T. Umma, and made available to the National Association of Online Security News Publishers (NAOSNP), noting that the operation was successfully carried out as a result of its swift operation.

 

The statement narrated as follows:

On March 26, 2024 at about 06:00hrs, a resident of Millionaire Estate, Oniru, Lagos, reported the kidnap of her 10yrs old son, maid (names withheld for security reasons) and driver, Mr. Samuel Kwasi ‘m’ at the Ikoyi area of Lagos. She further revealed that the kidnappers demanded One Hundred and Fifty Million Naira (N150, 000,000:00k) ransom.

 

Acting on this intelligence, a team of detectives led by CSP Tijjani Taofiq (Officer-in-Charge of the Zonal Monitoring Unit) acted swiftly utilizing advanced tracking techniques and intelligence gathering. The team pinpointed the kidnappers’ hideout in the Ayetoro area of Ijanikin, Badagry road, Lagos.

 

On March 28, 2024, at approximately 3:40 PM, officers raided the hideout at Cozzy Hotel, Ijaniki where one of suspects Nnachukwu Monday ‘m’ was arrested and the victims rescued unharmed.

 

In a coordinated operation, Mr. Samuel Kwasi, the driver and one Freeman Ekpebo ‘m’ were apprehended at Sun Era Hotel, Ijanikin, where they were allegedly waiting to receive the ransom.  Investigation revealed Mr. Kwasi to be the principal suspect and mastermind of the kidnap.

 

Mr. Kwasi 64 has confessed to demobilizing the car’s tracking device before the operation. Meanwhile, the Car’s Tracking Device and a Knife were recovered from the Hotel room at Sun Era Hotel, Ijanikin where the suspects were lodged.

 

While commending the Police Officers for their swift response, AIG Olatoye Durosinmi appreciates the community for their cooperation and vigilance. He also urges parents and guardians to be cautious and conduct thorough background checks when employing domestic staff.

 

The Zone 2 Police Command remains committed to ensuring the safety and security of all residents of Lagos and Ogun States.
