•Gangs behind abduction of Nkiru Sylvanus, 4-yr-old baby arrested •78-yr-old woman rescued

From GEORGE ONYEJIUWA, Owerri

Suspected kidnappers of the Nollywood actress and the Special Assistant to Governor Rochas Okorocha on Public Affairs, Miss Nkiru Sylvanus were yesterday paraded, as the police busted the criminal abduction ring in Imo State. Also paraded were four suspects who kidnapped the four-year-old daughter of the Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Imo State chapter, Mr. Blyden Amajirionwu from his house at Uratta Housing Estate in Owerri North Local Government, while he travelled to his village, Ngor Okpala.

In another breakthrough, the police successfully rescured a 78-year-old woman from kidnappers’ den. While parading the suspects, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Adisa Bolanta said three teams of police operatives carried out manhunt for Nkiru’s kidnappers and eventually arrested the four suspects namely, Okoro, Stella, Festus and Chijioke in their hideout at Imerienwe in Ngor Okpala Local Government Area. He said the suspects in their separate statements had confessed to be collaborators to the kidnappers, adding that they implicated one Chinedu alias Mopol, Ifeanyi alias Alaye, Ezekwem and Ifeanyi (surname withheld) as the main kidnappers that abducted the Nollywood actress.

“Since the kidnappers have been identified by the police, there is repeated visitation to their houses and hideout in a bid to arrest them.” The police boss also disclosed that based on the information provided to the police by Mr. Amajirionwu two suspects, one Tochukwu, a cripple and Ngozi were arrested, while another suspect escaped with bullet wounds during exchange of gunfire. Also the Police rescued a 78-year-old woman and arrested three persons suspected to have kidnapped her.

The victim, Mrs. Christiana Okere was kidnapped from her home in Ngor Okpala on December 18 and taken to Iguruwuta in Rivers State, where she was held till December 28, when she was rescued by the anti-kidnapping unit of the state CID. According to the commissioner, the suspects were arrested after a member of their gang disclosed the location of their hideout to the police.

The kidnappers had demanded a ransom of N20 million from the son of their victim. Bolanta warned that criminal elements in the state should desist from their nefarious activities or quit, as the police would clamp down on them. “This state is now a graveyard for kidnappers and other criminal elements.” The commissioner also warned against use of sirens by unauthorized people, saying such vehicles would be impounded.

    • David kingsley on

      U be mumu, those boko haram terrorizing north does it mean that the northerners are cursed tribe? Illiterate @Aboki

    • Security agents are having it real good- recording successes against kindnappers and armed robbers in the SE/SS. The good news here is that our people are assiting in giving information to security agents. Again the confessions by the arrested criminals are helping to implicate & expose their members/sponsors.@ Aboki,if your arrested boko boys could confess,implicate & expose your political/religous leaders,by now your region would have been talking of how to emerge from the religous sponsored self-destructions that have ravaged you.@ Kola,since ifa,ogun,shango etc are enjoying the blood of innocents used for rituals on regular basis,you dont need to be part of the Jews. I suppose the rituals are not for wealth or long life but for pride.

    • Aboki Nama, illitracy, poverty, boko bomb, disease , street beggars etc. Tell me what more curse is left of your people.

    • @Aboki: Nd’Igbo , hold your fire on this imposter. He is not Hausa as the suggests but but the loves of our lives-Yoruba. Take time to study the statement and you will figure out that real Abokis do not write this way. You require proof, watch out

    • aboki is talking,how many have died in North since Nigeria indepenent from ur Jihad terror.shame on you,even kidnaping happen every time in not but is nothing fore them because is just like blessing to them than terror boko hamam.

    • We should all rejoice that the police tasked with securing the lives and property of citizens made a dent against the kidnappers. All races, tribes and whatever you classify them as have criminals walking amongst them. What Nigeria needs is more neighbourhood cooperation, because we see those hiding in the shadows. The SE governors should also do more by making secutiry for the people a priority rather than spending all the security votes travelling abroad. It is unfair to label a whole group of people as criminals, when you find evil doers everywhere. armed robbery, ritual killings, fraud and corruption are all crimes against mankind.

  2. It is very difficult to believe the police story in any investigation considering their purported rescue efforts of Prof Kemane Okonjo. This arrested hoodlums, how did the police know they were actually the ones that abducted Nkiru? Or did she identify them as her abductors or did the police parade some suspects who refused to settle? Or where the alledge criminals exposed to toture to accept the said abduction? Only God and the police know. God help us.

    • @Rhema, be informed that the police are actually behind the success recorded by security agents during the search for the Queen and many more let’s support them by giving them useful information.

  3. @aboki, don’t u know that ur tribe hav been cursed already that is why they hav been coming to Igbo land and begging for food. Ewu nmeeee

  4. Well done officers! You guys are doing a great job, how i wish your counterparts in the north are doing the same to this boko boys. @ aboki watch your tongue! We’re far better and ahead of abokis like you.

  5. My people, there,s an igbo adege that says “Otara amu evula, O jikwa ibi ugwo?…meaning whoever eats the scrotum of the ram is owing elephantiasis of the scrotum…all those involved in kidnapping should please drop their trade and seek for other productive ventures or have themselves to be blamed…Repent and live in 2013 or refuse and receive some bullets on your hardened silly skulls….this I can guarantee my fellow country folks…A word is enough for the wise.

  6. IT IS ALWAYS VERY SAD TO READ THAT KIDNAPPERS HAVE CONFESSED OF THEIR EVIL ACTIONS AND AT THE SAME TIME NO ONE HAS READ THAT THEY HAVE BEEN JAILED OR KILLED AS THE LAW HAS PRESCRIBED. PEOPLE WHO SPONSOR THESE CRIMINALS OR WHO SHIELD THEM MUST REMMBER THATR ONE DAY THEY WILL PAY DEARLY FOR THEIR ACTIONS. ANY MONEY GOT BY THIS KIND OF BEHAVIOUR OR BY KILLING, ROBBERY BRIBE OR OTHER EVIL MEANS ATTRACTS GOD’S ANGERNIN THE END.PEOPLE ALSO MUST REMEMBER THAT KIDNAPPING OR ABDUCTION IS FORBIDDEN As seen in the deuteronomy. ANY ONE WHO ABDUCTS, WHETHER HE RELEASED THE VICTIM OR KILLED HIM MUST BE NKILLED.. IMO STATE PASSED A LAW THATN KIDNAPPING ATTRACTS CAPITAL PUNISHMENT AND THERE HAVE BEEN MANY CASES OF KIDNAPPINGS AND ARRESTS AND YET NO ONE HAS HEARD THAT ANY ONE HAS BEEN KILLED OR JAILED. WHAT KIND OF STATE IS THIS . THE DELTA HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY PASSED THE SAME LAW AND NOTHING HAS HAPPENED. ABIA STATE DID NTHE SAME THING AND YET NO KIDNAPPER HAS BEEN JAILE OR HANGED THIS OFFRNCE. WHAT IS THE JUDICIARY DOING? WHAT ARE THE GOVERNORS DOING? THIS ACTION IS GIVING THE CRIMINALS A LOT OF IMPETUS TO CARRY ON THEIR ACTIVITIES. IN OUR STATE, RIVERS, MANY OF OUR SONS OVERSEAS ARE AFFRAID TO COME HOME. A FRIEND OF MINE TOLD ME THAT HIS SON IN USA HAS REFUSED TO VISIT HOME FOR FEAR OF BEING KIDNAPPED.HE IS FROM OWERRI.WHEN WE HAD DISCUSIONS IN THE HTOEL PRESIDENTIAL , MANY FATHERS WERE LAMENTING THAT THEIR CHILDREN OVERSEAS ARE NOT COMING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS. LET ME PERSONALLY APPEAL TO THE GOVERNORS IN THE NIGER DELTA REGION TO DO MORE THAN THEY ARE DOING NOW TO SCRAP THIS CRIMINALITY IN THEIR RESPECTIVE STATES. IT IS ALSO KNOWN THAT SOME OPPOSITION IN SOME OF THESE STATES ARE ALSO HELPING TO CRIMINALISE THESE STATES IN ORDER TO PAINT THE GOVERNORS WITH BLACK PAINT.TO MAKE THEM AS IF THEY ARE DOING NOTHING. ANY STATE GOVERNOR IN WHOSE STATE THE KIDNAPPING STOPS WILL GET OUR REWARD. WE DO NOT INTEND TO MAKE US KNOWN YET. WE ARE WATCHING. LETNOUR STATES BE RID OF THESE CRIMINALS.

  7. @Rhema, re u the main kidnapper? Y re u doubting the story of the arrested kidnappers suspects. U look suspecious. As 4 @bolaje law enforcement cannot be coming to ur house and inform u to come and withness the execution of criminals. Kudos to imo state command 4 a wonderful job.

  8. Will the Police still go after those that kidnapped Nkiru Sylvanus if the criminals did let go on their own? Sounds like the huge ransome was actually paid. The wind of revelation is blowing hard. More facts will soon be known if our big wigs will not hush up issues. The vultures have no business in a forest that has no carcas. How much is Nkiru worth to attract kidnappers looking for hundred million bucks? How high is her portfolio in the good Gorvernors’ cabinet? From whom were they expecting the ransome and who could have been the insider assuring them that such money was payable? Sometimes when money is needed badly, a victim doubles for an insider. Some women have a way of squeezing out cash especially when their boy friends are rich. Saying that they are pregnant is quickly dropped for a bigger plot. I wish the Police in Imo State the wisdom to do an indepth investigation. Happy new year to Imo State. Happy new year to Gov. Rochas.

  9. I personaly want to tank GOD for his grace toward d exposing of dis so called kidnapers and i all so want to tank d police 4 allowing dem selfs to be used by GOD and i also want to tank d imo state goverment 4 their effort in catchind dis hoodlums finaly i want to use dis opportunity to wish all d readers of sunnews and all imo state indigens long life and a prosperious new year.

  10. Aboki must talk like aboki no matter his or her level of education. That ibos are cursed trible? Why wouldnt your people let us have that biafra? What are your people afraid of? Boko haram have been doing a great job in the north abi? B4 u utter anything 4rm ur goddamned mouth i want u to reason 1st. One na one aboki go go market but he no go returned…

  11. Are you sure?

  12. Only God can deliver us from this jews blood shockers. Why is that every single imaginable evil has to come from jews’ land?. Most of u jews must be very bad. All they (jews) they ever live for is money monet money , not minding how that money is made. To nigerian jews de end justify de means to jews in de process of money making. If not how can people resort to kiddnap ur own very people for de sake of wealth. I thank God am not jew n have never venture into that God forsaking region n i don’t pray to. Mark my word, another bad story will come jews land before de end this week, that am hundred per cent sure

    • Vita in Diaspora on

      Your region`s daily news of ritual killings and armed robbery are not for money, I suppose. Those ritual murders are for long life, abi?
      If I were to choose between the evil of falling into the hands of kidnappers or ritualists, I would choose the former. So, those “jews” are still far better off and by all indications, they don`t love money more than your own people do.
      – Vita in Diaspora

    • @Kola Amodu, that is not your real name. You selected this pseudoname to seed discourse among Yoruba and Igbo. Did the Isreali Jewish state classify Ibo people as Jews? And why constantly abuse Ibo people and call them “Jews”, as if that is a degrading word. If you have something to say that is not racist, ethnic or downright insulting, then contribute to this forum rather than use a false name to perpetuate hatred and division. Why pretend to be someone else, when in actual fact you are not from the SW but rather from elsewhere. People on this forum should stop raving and ranting ethnic racist stereotypical verbage to row up emotions by those who feel the wicked words chosen to depict hatred. Poeple should ignore the bait of responding with further hate feeled rhetorics.

  13. Ezebue onochie on

    nigerian police is not reliable at all,bad eggs are numerous among them,some are spies to bandits some supply arms,and some are partners in crime,they are all after bribes once the deal cast,they wil deny you and your gang,this days criminals,cultists and ritualists re recruited in nigerian police.

  14. Which Way Nigeria on

    Enough of these crimes. Starting from today, any person involves in criminality or any form of evil just to put this great Nation of ours into shame shall loose his/her own life in JESUS NAME.

  15. ABOKI, YOU DO NOT CURSE WHOM GOD HAS BLESSED, IBOS ARE THE APLE OF GOD`S EYE. CURSE WILL REMAIN IN YOUR HOUSE AND GENERATIONS YET UNBORN.

  16. Pls my fellow citizens,i want tell all of u that when any part of this country is in trouble the rest of the country suffer the heat,whether u are in the north,south,east or west.Continue to pray 4 the progress and minimization of evil in this country.Stop fanning the embers of tribal discord.

  17. @aboki, your tribe and satanic religion is cursed. Your penis will fall out where you are fucking 72 virgins in hell. @amodu, the jews are the chosen people of God. We are blessed with milk and honey.

  18. I grew up in d West, and also did my NYSC at d West. They are truly ritualist. One ebo or d oda every morning at d road side. Fools and dirty yoruba pigs. Every day people miss in buses in d west where they are whisked to unknown hideouts and butchered 4 rituals. Cursed tribe like urs. U better remove d log of wood in ur eyes b4 removing d speckle in d eye of d ibos. Ritualist and blood suckers like u two…@Ofe mmanu and @Aboki respectively!!!!!!

  19. aboki i knew u very well you are not even from the north *oyele ikpu* remember that ur friend is forking ur wife so go and solve that problem first (IKPU*

  20. @aboki, igbos are blessed tribe from God. son of almajiri like you. i will stop giving your begger brother and sisters money from now on. let their 72 virgens help them animals

  21. lol okorocha you are too much…because your nollywood girlfriend was kidnapped you went all out to capture the kidnappers..what of the others that had fallen victim before now?
    ngozi nwosu an easterner like yourself you have refused to donate 1naira until a yoruba governor in far away lagos put up the 4.5million needed..continue GOD is watching you in 3d

  22. @ Kola Amodu again, i expected you to grow up since you are able to come in contact with the social media. I have severally advised you to go back to school for proper reasoning otherwise your,s present attitude and lack of knowledge portents you are no where in the society. You always attached your useless comments with tribal lines. You refused to buttress issues concerning the Nigeria entity. Is it the Igbos that introduced kidnapping in Nigeria? Are you pretending to say you do know where these very social vices originated from. Has it failed to be made known to your person? I,m not comfortable with your ardent comments each time it comes to issues that concerns the south east, and to worsen your case you are ill educated. I do not want to join issues again with you because that will negate my very humble self. I have a good number of Yoruba men and women who are so much loyal to me and they have benefited immensely from me. I have equally benefited from them in no little measures. I,m only concerned on those cheating fellow Nigerians by one reason or the other, your ranting on the social media will not fetch you any dividend rather destruction. Your brother,s wife mrs Rotimi was kidnapped last two wks at Ibadan, while the OGUN state house speaker was also kidnapped at Abeokuta as at 3months ago and other uncountable rape cases and ritual practices going on at Yoruba land. Every right thinking human being must condemn these social menace other than being sarcastic, better be warned else you are casting imminent catastrophe to yourself. The other useless Aboki like you made a careless statement above because he is opportuned to come incontact with the social media owned by his nephew while refusing to understand that the entire northern elites had brought imaginable shame on Nigeria through Boko Haram, polio virus and religious extremism. Just look at mr kola Amodu that can not compose good English to always insult well articulated tribe of eastern Nigeria.

  23. I agree with you Olatunde Olaniyi,Rochas is a maradona,b/cos his girl friend was involve,all the security agents were mandated.the only time you will know that there are intelligent officers in Nigerian police is robbers or kidnappers kill any V.I.P or police officer.
    but some times they do a good job.I believe that 50% of Northern security men knew all the Boko Haram members and all the security men in East,west and south knew their customers.when the wind blow ,we see the ASS whole of the chicken

  24. wel cmt hv been md wen bigmen were touch by den u see scrty in ful force if is d poor dat d end of his lfe ngr police most of dem ar wt d criml an pls let kp relgn mttr aside wen it cm to an issue a bout our scrty let pray for d good of our nation

  25. kola amodu, I have always known you as either the offspring of a dog or armed robbers. your prostitute mother must must have gotten you from one or all of the above. As a yoruba, i know you are a coward, selfish, backbiter, ritualist, armed robber etc. All these are what the yoruba race represent. Idiot yoruba race. A people who are cursed forever. A land that produced the pig obasanjo who raped his daughter in law is cursed.

  26. Jo n iykee, as u can see i am a proud Yoruba man, in fact. Am from Osun state. Am not using any other tribe name. Two Jo u accused me of calling u fools “jews”. Am really surprised to read ur contribution , let me ask u something, are u stupid or insane, or are u from another planet. Where have u being to since all this time. U really want to tell me that u idioit don’t know that Ndigbo has being calling themselves África jews. If u don’t know this u better ask ur people what they have being calling themselves . Ur people Ibos said u’re jews, are u ashame of ur people calling themselves what they are not n never will be. Jo mark my word, another crime will be reported before de end of this week, committed by our Nigerian jews. U better accept it, nigerian jewsare a cursed race in Nigeria. U better find a way out of ur believe toward money. Useless people.

  27. Opara . C from U.K on

    Congratulations our dear police force, this is job well done. In fact, if you people can afford to maintain your strategy, our society will be free of criminals. Keep up your good work.

  28. Owerri, u really want us to believe that Nigerian jews are not cursed, if truely u’re not cursed, how come about 90 to 95 per cent of crimes in this country are committed by our Nigerian jews. Owerri, tell me something, why do find it very difficult to accept ur fault even when it’s obviuos to de rest of people that u messed up. Ur people will try to blame others for their misdeed. U’re shameless people.

  29. kola amodu, you dont make sense anytime you post.
    the attribute of a cursed people is when their elders and leaders begin to commit sacrelege. obasanjo as your god raped his daughter in law. obasanjo being cursed means that the whole yoruba people are cursed. stupid yoruba people. fools

  30. @ Kola Amodu, the idiot from impoverished state of Osun, have you made any effort to apprehend those that kidnapped and raped your brother,s wife mrs Rotimi at Ibadan? pls go and sanctify yourself before praying for others, your house is under ablaze go for it,s redeemption.

  31. bastard kola amodu, son of a harlot from armed robbers.dont get tired of posting.
    yoruba is land infested by criminals, fools, idiots, people who sell their soul to the devil for money. it is because of money that yorubas moved in mass to the stupidly and devilishly contrived religion islam concorted by the most foolish and stupid man on this earth fake prophet moha mad while those you are accusing of loving money remained in the most progresssive religion. yoruba people can do any evil for money and when they do they cover it up and the media dont get to know. I hate yoruba people and their cursed land. I hate obasanjo and all he stands for. foolish tribalists

  32. Angel Gabriel on

    I will never believe the statement made by the CP of imo state, Adisa Bolanta is a lier and corrupt officer, we all know his atticident in Oyo State when he was the CP. there is every possibilities that the people they paraded are innocent souls.@ kola Amodu it is a sacrilage to tell people you are frm osun,,Osun people are respectful and humble, why must you called ibos such names. u cant compare ibos crime to the innocent killing in the North.
