Drama as lady identifies her abductors after boarding same bus



It was a mixture of drama and karma as luck ran out on a kidnapping gang in Otukpo, Benue South Senatorial District after some members of the gang were identified by one of their victims in a public bus.

The accused persons reportedly boarded a vehicle from Otukpo to Makurdi at Ihotu Park only to meet a girl they had kidnapped and released after collecting ransom.

Found with the accused persons was a bag they had collected from the girl when she was kidnapped.

The victim wasted no time in raising the alarm after holding one of the kidnappers inside the vehicle while two other members of the gang took to their heels but were caught by sympathisers.

It was later discovered that the Ghana-Must-Go bag the gang members kept at the back of the vehicle contained N11 million cash.

According to a report by The Nation, the said sum was counted at the police station.

An angry mob was about to set the kidnap suspects ablaze when the manager of Ihotu Park quickly called in soldiers and policemen to come to their rescue.

Investigation revealed that the three suspected kidnappers have been moved to the Benue State Police Command headquarters in Makurdi.

At press time, more victims of the gang had come to the police station to identify them.
