A notorious kidnapper who kidnapped his own father and got a N4 million ransom has been tracked and killed in Kogi State.
The notorious kidnapper, whose name was not revealed to the media, was killed in a gun duel with security forces in Olamaboro Local Area of Kogi State.
It was gathered that the notorious kidnapper, now deceased, was known for tormenting residents through several armed robbery operations and countless cases of kidnappings.
Adejoh Friday Nicodemus, who is the Chairman of Olamaboro Local Government Area of the state confirmed this whilst addressing journalists today, August 1. He said that the efforts of security operatives also led to the arrest of another hardened criminal known as Kizito Ocheme [aka Igbo], famous for consistently terrorising Olamaboro and Ogbadibo Local Government Area of Benue State.
During the press conference, Nicodemus claimed that the efforts of Yahaya Bello to guarantee the safety of the people were now yielding results as Kogi State was becoming impenetrable for criminals.
