The Delta State Police Command, has reported how an hotelier (name undisclosed) in Oghareki, Delta State, allegedly aided the escape of two of the three suspects, who allegedly abducted a Benin City based Pastor (name withheld) on Sunday January 9.

Bright Edafe, the Police team from Oghara Division, received information from the DPO New Etete Division in Benin City, Edo State, that a Pastor was kidnapped along with his Lexus 330 SUV with Reg. No KWL 510 BH Black in colour. After a painstaking technical intelligence led investigation, the Police gathered that the vehicle was parked along Ibori Road in Oghara.

 

The DPO Oghara Division, led operatives to the area, where the said vehicle was sighted. Upon sighting the Vehicle, the Operatives laid ambush and waited for the suspects to show up. Three men later appeared to pick the vehicle and the Operatives rounded them up, but two of the suspects escaped, while one of them named, Osagie Felix (male) age 36 of H & H Ologbo in Edo State, was arrested.
