Police Nab Vigilante Leader In Anambra For Alleged Kidnapping


One of the vigilante leaders in Anambra State has been arrested by police for allegedly involving himself in kidnappings.

Recoveries made from his house include, four AK-47 riffles recovered at the backyard of his house.

A source who spoke with on condition of anonymity said that the security operatives, based on a tip off, stormed his compound on Tuesday and got him arrested.

He said: “It was a shock to him. He has made enough money through kidnappings. Sometimes, he collects as low as 1.5-2million naira to free their victims.

“Those AK-47 riffles were hidden in a thick banana plantation at the back of his house. Our people are being kidnapped almost on daily basis without knowing that our Vigilante leader was behind them.

“Our God has exposed him and it has shown that nothing lasts forever. As we speak, he’s with the security operatives and some of his gang members are equally, being picked.”

When contacted, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, said that he had not received the report.

He said: “People should know that security operatives had been on the trail of criminal elements in the State for some time now.

“Such operation would continue until, Anambra State is fully, recovered from criminal elements.”
