In a related development, the Police Command in Ebonyi State has revealed that no fewer than 17 kidnap suspects have been arrested by men of the command in connection with various crimes in the state and recovered some weapons.

The police public relations officer (PPRO), DSP Joshua Ukandu, while briefing journalists on recent breakthroughs recorded by the command said the suspects were arrested in various locations within and outside the state.

He maintained that they were arrested in connection with crimes such as alleged murder, kidnapping, robbery, and motorcycle snatching, among others.

“We have gathered to inform you, the press, of the recent achievements and progress made by the command through intelligence driven and community oriented policing.

“Following the murder of one Chinese Eziulo, ‘f’, and the kidnapping of Micheal Eziulo, ‘m’ and Linda Eziulo, ‘f’, the command, under the leadership of CP Augustina Ogbodo, launched an aggressive manhunt for the kidnappers.

“Intelligence led operatives of the command to the trailer park in Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State, where two suspects, suspected to be behind the crime, were apprehended.

“Marked dollar notes paid as ransom were recovered from the suspects. The total money paid for ransom was N40 million but we were able to recover some,” Ukandu said.

The spokesman also said that some other suspected murderers, who invaded the premises of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Nkwagu, on Dec. 24, 2023, have also been arrested.
