Police Arrest 4 Suspected Kidnappers In Makurdi, Benue State

4 suspected kidnappers have been arrested in Makurdi, the Benue State capital.

The hoodlums were said to be arrested by policemen on duty at a  checkpoint in Makurdi, on Thursday, July 28, 2016.

According to the Special Adviser to the Benue State Governor on Public Administration, Japheth Gurgur, the men who were covered with charms and assorted weapons, were heading towards Wadata Area of Makurdi but were unlucky, as they were stuck in the heavy traffic congestion that was witnessed in Makurdi as a result of the burial of the late Bishop Emeritus, Atule Usuh.

He said, "On reaching the police checkpoint, their driver attempted to speed past but miraculously, the vehicle engine off right in front of the police.

"Four of the daredevils attempted to run out from the golf voxwagen car but the police arrested them. They were looking like babalawos, covered with charms.

''When the vehicle was searched, behold, heavily loaded sniper riffles were discovered," Gurgur added. 

The 4 suspects are reportedly cooling their heels presently in police custody.
