The Edo State Police Command has arrested four members of the kidnap gang that abducted Dr. Andy Ehanire, Managing Director of Ogba Zoo and Nature Park and Daisy Danjuma’s brother.
This was confirmed on Friday by the Edo Police spokesman, DSP Moses Nkombe, who said efforts were ongoing to arrest other fleeing suspects.
The suspects were arrested in Sapele and other communities in Delta State.
Recall that gunmen shot dead three policemen last month after buying them beer before abducting Mr. Andy Ehanire, who is also a brother to the Minister of State for Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire.
Mr. Ehanire reportedly spent three weeks in the den of the kidnappers before he was released after the kidnappers collected N25 million and another $100,000.
The sum of N800,000 was said to have been recovered from the wife of one of the suspects.
She was also arrested for conspiracy.
One of the arrested kidnappers, narrated in a video posted online how Ehanire was abducted and why they killed the three police operatives on duty the day they struck.
According to him, they had earlier attempted to carry out the abduction twice but were prevented by the presence of policemen.
He said it was at the third attempt they shot the three policemen and took their target away through the waterways.
He also said their attempt to burn the vehicle they used for the kidnap operation failed because there was no matches.
