One Labaran Ibrahim has been apprehended by operatives of the Ondo State Security Agency Network also known as Amotekun Corps.
It was alleged that the 32-year-old suspected kidnapper have been sighted at different locations in the state displaying lunacy.
Ibrahim was arrested in the Akure garage area of Ondo town, headquarters of Ondo West Local Government Area of the state, following the suspicious manner he was dressed and walked.
Reports revealed that Amotekun cops have been monitoring the suspect for a while until his successful arrest.
The local security agency reportedly pounced on the suspect when he was about to be picked up by some persons in a black jeep who arrived to take him away.
A hawker in the park who claimed to have witnessed the events said Ibrahim was spotted walking aimlessly like a lunatic to and fro Akure garage to Itanla junction before the black jeep pulled up beside him to carry him.
His action raised suspicion which made people around the area gather and beat him up.
In his confession after the arrest, Ibrahim told the security men that he was truly not a lunatic, but working for one man called Rabiu Adamu in Akure, the state capital.
The suspect claimed he is from Sokoto and that one Rabiu, his in-law, brought him to Akure park and put him in a car going to Ondo town.
He said; “The man paid N700 to the driver and later gave me N1500 to board a car going to Ore and from Ore to Epe where I am going to work. He did not tell me the kind of work he wants me to do.”
“Rabiu was coming behind in his black jeep with three other men inside. He told me to remove my sim card and put it in Akure garage roundabout and proceeds to Ore before I was arrested at Itanla because of the way I dressed,” he said.
Amotekun Corps in Ondo town disclosed that they have swung into action to arrest the owner of the black jeep and the three men in Akure for further investigation.
