“Efforts to arrest the fleeing suspect, who is strongly believed to be one of the kidnappers operating around the border towns of Ekiti, Kogi, and Kwara states are ongoing,” he added.

The statement reads:” The good people of Kwara State will recall that the command issued a statement assuring citizens and residents of the state of their security and safety throughout the holiday season. The promise prompted Cp Paul Odama to marshal some strategies to ensure a secure Kwara State. Thankfully, one of the major results of the strategy was recorded on December 31, 2022, at about 2300 hrs, along the Bode Sadu axis of Moro local government area, when a detachment of policemen detailed to monitor the axis sighted and flagged down a Bajaj motorcycle operator for a routine check. Surprisingly, the rider of the motorcycle jumped down from the motorcycle and ran into the bush. A search of the bag tied to the motorcycle revealed its contents, which included two AK-47 rifles; seven empty magazines; 50 rounds of AK-47 live ammunition; three Techno handsets; 11 telephone handset batteries; criminal charms; clothes and the sum of N255,000.”
