The Police Command in Osun State paraded three kidnap suspects, wearing military camouflage alongside ten others for various criminal acts on Sunday in Osogbo.
The trio, Henry Omenihu (24), Paul Chituru (24) and Henry Bright (18) were arrested over alleged involvement in the kidnap of Mr Kayode Agbeganji, the Secretary of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Ondo State Chapter and his wife, Oyeyemi.
The Renaissance gathered that the suspects were apprehended at Osu in Atakumosa West Local Government on May 29.
While parading the suspects, Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Fmihan Adeoye, said the suspects carried out their nefarious activities on the April 14 and collected a ransom they placed over their victims in Cross Rivers State before they left their victims off the hook.
Adeoye explained that the suspects were fished out from their hideout, following thorough search and investigation.
He said the suspects would be arraigned in court immediately after the investigation is concluded.
In a related development, the commissioner took time to advise the public to be very careful of whom they employed as housemaid or guards to avoid loss of valuables and even lives.
The advice was given on the heels of a housemaid and her husband, who employed the service of one Azeez Hammed and conspired to rob a woman of her valuables worth N18 million.
The couple, David Ibitoye and Ifeola Ibitoye along with their cohort harmed themselves with dangerous weapons and pounced on the woman in her house, inflicted injuries on her and made away with her property.
According to the Police boss, Ifeola was a housemaid disengaged by the woman, who happened to be her employer.
Few months after her disengagement, Ifeola, her husband and Hammed launched an offensive against the woman and strip her of her valuables.
The commissioner enjoined the general public to beware of whom they employed, noting that investigation was ongoing on the case.
He added that the suspects would be arranged immediately after the investigation was concluded.
