Two among the kidnappers, who stormed the Nigerian Turkish Int’l College, Isheri, Ogun State, abducting eight females, including two Turkish nationals, have been arrested, said sources.
This was even as police authorities have vowed not to engage in negotiations for payment of ransom with abductors of the students and staff.
But worried and frantic parents have been divided over amount to contribute in order to get their children and wards released.
The two suspects were alleged to have been tracked and arrested at different locations. It was learnt that one of the kidnappers, simply identified as ‘Commander General,’ was arrested in the creek, while the second, was arrested in Arogbo area, Ondo State on Monday night.
According to sources, detectives stormed the creek and swooped on Commander General, while he was in bed with two women. The police recovered a big Mikano Generator, which was planted close to the kidnapper’s makeshift house in the creek. The second suspect was arrested in Arogbo, Ondo State, by a decoy team of policemen deployed in the community.
A police source said: “The Special Intelligence Respond Team (IRT), deployed by the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, from Abuja, is closing in on the kidnappers and several suspects, including two prime suspects, already in police net.”
