Operatives of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Intelligence Response Team (IRT) have arrested three more suspects connected with the abduction of the Oniba of Iba in Lagos, Oba Goriola Oseni.
The monarch spent 21 days in the kidnappers’ den before he was released after the payment of N15.1 million ransom.
The suspects are: Yeris Fresh 45, Anthony Ebidaear, 51 and Keremeni Mode, 40.
It was gathered that the suspects, who furnished the kidnappers with information on the monarch, collected N800,000 as their share of the money allegedly collected as ransom.
Their arrest was sequel to the clampdown on the gang’s leader identified as Buba Furejo (a.k.a General Duba) and his second-in -command who were earlier paraded by security operatives.
It was also learnt that apart from providing information to aid the monarch’s abduction, the three suspects also provided surveillance on the waterways, hinting the kidnappers on activities of security operatives.
Police Commissioner Fatai Owoseni said the suspects will be charged to court at the completion of investigation.
Also yesterday, the police paraded ‘Prophet’ David Ifunaya for allegedly abducting a teenager.
