“The successful operation of the Special Squad of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit of the Ebonyi Command of the Nigeria Police has led to the arrest of no fewer than eight suspected killers of the INEC staff in Ebonyi while three of the suspects were neutralised in the operation.

"The killers, suspected to be kidnappers who also abducted their victim’s wife were arrested at their hideout in a forest at Lokpanta in Abia state on Saturday, June 24.

“Efforts are being intensified to apprehend the leader of the criminal gang nicknamed ‘Alhaji’ who fled during the gun duel between the gang and the police.

“The suspected kidnappers are allegedly responsible for the various kidnappings and other criminal activities happening in the council area,” Aja said.

“Security is everyone’s business, when you see something, say something in that way, we will be several steps ahead of the criminals,” he added.
