A man feigning insanity has been apprehended for alleged kidnapping in Akure, Ondo State.
S.R reports that the culprit, simply identified as Dele, was nabbed on Monday around Isikan. It was gathered that Dele, who kept wandering the area alone, was suspected to be in possession of a mobile phone while acting funny.
The action aroused the interest of residents who handed him over to the Quick Response Squad (QRS) of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC),
While parading him, Pedro Awili, the Commandant of the NSCDC in Ondo State, said: “When our men arrested him and checked his mobile phone after some few seconds, he got a payment alert of N1.5 million into his account.
Immediately the alert entered, he forcefully collected the mobile phone and smashed it on the floor. We went to repair the mobile phone to know and ascertain the person that sent the money to him and the persons he is working for.”
Awili said the suspect belongs to a gang of serial kidnap syndicate terrorizing the people of the state.
He vowed that the case will be followed to a conclusion and ensure justice is properly served on the culprit and his cohorts.
