Kingsley Innocent then hide at Samuel Effiong’s house in Udo town in Ovia South-West local government area of Edo state, Standard Gazette learned. Kidnapping alarm was actually raised to the management of the company where Mr innocent worked. They told the company that the man was kidnapped on his way to work. One of the suspects then called the Management of the company to demand Five Million Naira ransom to effect his release. The company which is not mentioned for security reasons contacted the police immediately and an investigation was launched, leading to the arrest of the culprits. Through high technical intelligence, the location of the suspects was detected. They were subsequently arrested by the police. In an interview with Standard Gazette correspondent, Festus Alenkhe, the suspects blamed their criminal action on poverty.
