Police Arrest Kidnapper Of Plateau Clerics In Ogun


A 52-year-old suspected kidnapper, Christopher Yaro, has been apprehended by the Ogun State Command of the Nigeria Police Force.

Naija News learnt that Yaro was nabbed in the Ago-Iwoye area of the state.

According to the Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alamutu, Yaro was implicated in the abduction of two reverend fathers in Pankshin LGA of Plateau State.

After fleeing to Ogun State, he sought refuge with a cousin in Ago-Iwoye town.

Alamutu stated that Yaro was later captured and admitted to his involvement in the crime.

“Further details would not be released for now to prevent jeopardising further investigation.

“Meanwhile, the Plateau State command has been contacted and it was confirmed that the suspect is on the police wanted list.

“Suspect will be handed over to the Plateau State command for further discreet investigation and prosecution,” Daily Trust quoted Alamutu saying.

Meanwhile, David Gift Opara, also known as 2Baba, a most wanted cult kingpin and the prime suspect in the murder of the Divisional Police Officer of Ahoada Division, SP Bako Angbashim, five months ago, has been reportedly feared dead after police raided his hideout.

Naija News reports that this comes a few months after the Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, placed a bounty of N100 million on the suspect.

According to PM news, the tactical teams of the Rivers State Police operatives raided 2Baba’s camp in Idu-Ekpeye in Ahoada East Local Government area on Saturday afternoon and reportedly killed him during the raid.

However, sources close to the Police Command also confirmed to the aforementioned publication that there was a massive raid at the 2Baba hideout between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm on Saturday, February 17.

It would be recalled that a few days ago, the Rivers State Police Command told journalists that it was closing in on 2Baba.

Commissioner of Police, Tunji Disu, who was represented by the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Operations, Olubenga Adepoju, disclosed while handing over four 20 KVA generators stolen by 2Baba vowed that the notorious prime suspect would be nailed soon.
