Army uncovers Kidnap Den, arrests 10 suspects in Ondo

Troops of 32 Artillery Brigade, on Wednesday said it arrested 10 suspected kidnappers after raiding their den in Akoko, Ondo State. Ojo Adenegan, an Assistant Director of the Army Public Relations, disclosed this in a statement in Akure.

Captain Adenegan said the suspects, together with some of their informants, were nabbed through a special operation executed by the Nigerian Army.

He noted that the Brigadier-General of the 32 Artillery Brigade, James Ataguba, led the troops that combed and smoked out the hoodlums from their den in the Akoko axis of the state, which shares a border with Kogi State.

"The commander and his troops did not leave any stone unturned where they raided," Captain Adenegan said.

“They thoroughly searched various forested kidnappers’ camps and spots at the boundary between Kogi and Ondo states in Akunu Akoko, Ohogo and Ogale communities."

He explained that the special operation was carried out by the Army as a follow-up to rescue some of the abducted victims at Akunnu and Ose areas of the state.

He urged members of the public to share information that could potentially lead to the arrest of kidnappers and other criminals with 32 Artillery Brigade.

"The Brigade hereby advises the general public to always give useful information on any criminal activities through the Brigade call center with the following hotlines: 09030002151 and 09030002151," he said.
