Two suspected kidnappers and nine alleged internet fraudsters, have been arrested by the Kwara State Police Command.

According to the command spokesperson, Ajayi Okasanmi, the suspects Rafiu Ganiyu (45) and Mustapha Afolabi (42) were arrested on top of a motorbike along Ganmo/Omu-Aran road in the state.

Okasanmi said that “when the search was conducted on them, three locally made pistols and four locally made cut to size guns were found on them.

“On interrogation, the suspects could not give satisfactory account of themselves, fueling the suspicion that they were on a kidnapping mission.”

Similarly, Okasanmi added that “while on patrol along Malete area, acting on an actionable intelligence that a group of suspected cultists had assembled at a location in Malete, a team of operatives attached to the command swooped on the location and nine suspects were arrested.

“In their statements, they confessed to being internet fraudsters/scammers. Some exotic cars, phones with laptops were recovered from them. Suspects in both cases will be charged to court as soon as investigation is completed.” he concluded.
