It was reported that a kidnap suspect, Linus Nlemadim, from Egbelu Obube in Owerri North Local Government Area of Imo State, shocked his captors yesterday when he expressed readiness to reel out the names of his colleagues in crime.
Nlemadim was allegedly arrested in connection with the recent kidnap of one Eziopara Ben Anyanwu, an American-based indigene of the same autonomous community.
It was gathered from a source that the suspect, who made the promise soon after his arrest, vowed that he would not die alone.
“The suspect said he was ready to mention the names of members of the gang that were involved ing the crime, and that there was no way he would die alone,” the source recounted.
The source also said that the suspect hinged his position on the fact since his associates, who were earlier arrested, had leaked their secret, he would not keep quiet and die alone.
He said: “True to his threat, the suspect released the name of another colleague of his. This led to the arrest of his accomplice from Ngor Okpala Local Government Area.
“I believe they will be telling the police all they know about the alleged crime.”
A community leader revealed that the two suspects, who linked Linus Nlemadim to the deal, were natives of Upe and Umunam in Ngor Okpala Local Government Area.
The source said one of the kidnappers was caught when he went to Umuovum, Ulakwo to sell an i-Pad they stole.
“The man, who indicated interest in buying the gadget unlocked the equipment, saw the images of the kidnapped Ben Anyanwu and quickly brought the police into the picture,” the source said.
