Police in Delta have arrested two kidnap suspects at Udu Local Government Area of the state.

Police spokesman, DSP Bright Edafe told newsmen in Warri (Delta) on Sunday that the suspects were nabbed by a police decoy squad following credible and intelligence-led investigation.

“Operatives of the decoy squad embarked on a sting operation on May 11 and arrested one Emmanuel James suspected to be the leader of the gang.

“On May 12, the suspect led the operatives to Ejewu community in Udu Local Government Area of the state where the gang’s driver, Ejiro Peter was arrested.

“They confessed their involvement in series of armed robbery and kidnapping in Ughelli and Warri and the April 27 kidnap of Mr and Mrs Okutonye Efetobore at Ughellli town.

“They also confessed to have collected a N1 million before releasing the couple,’’ he said.

Edafe said the suspects led police operatives to another notorious member of the Egbike Community in Udu Local Government Area on May 12.

Upon sighting police operatives, the third suspect engaged them in a gun duel and in the process escaped through the ceiling of his roof with bullet wounds, he said.

He said also that when the apartment was searched, a bag containing a locally-fabricated pistol and three rounds of 7.62, AK-47 live ammunitions were recovered.

Edafe added that a manhunt was on-going for the fleeing suspect.
