3 Kidnappers Are Arrested For Beheading Five Vigilantes in Rivers State
Three suspected Kidnappers are arrested for allegedly beheading 5 vigilante members in Rumuodogbo, Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State.
The 3 suspects identified as, Uzoma Amandi, Uburize Omesi and Onyekachi Amadi, were rounded up some weeks ago by operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team.
The suspects were said to be members of Icelander Confraternity, reportedly posted the victims’ dismembered body on social media.
The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, was said to have been informed about the activities of the gang in October 2020, after the gruesome killing of the vigilantes in Rumuodogbo community.
One source stated; “They usually abandoned victims’ cars. They would transport their victims swiftly to their camp in a forest in Chuba. They accepted whatever they got as ransoms, released their victims and moved on to kidnap others.
“At the end of the week, they would return to Abia State where they all live with their families as ‘responsible’ men. The killing and beheading of the OSPAC vigilantes assisted the police to gather enough intelligence that led to the arrest of three members of the gang.”
