Ogun: Man allegedly kidnap military officer, collects his uniform, identity card, three ATM cards

A suspected member of a kidnapping gang, Waliu Oloyede who allegedly abducted a military officer on the 16th of July 2021 around Odo-Pako, Ota, in Ado-Odo/Ota local government of the state has been arrested by operatives of Ogun state police command.

Waliu Oloyede and his gang were said to have dispossed the military officer of his uniform, his identity card and three ATM cards before their victim escaped from them.

According to statement from the Spokesman of the state police command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, Waliu Oloyede was arrested following a distress call received by the DPO Sango Ota divisional headquarters, CSP Godwin Idehai that Vigilante men were having issues with an army officer at Odo-Pako area of Ota.

Upon this report, the DPO was said to have led his team to the scene where the suspect, who dressed in full military camouflage uniform with the rank of W02 but could not give satisfactory account of himself was apprehended and brought to the station. 

The police revealed that the suspect, who was said to have attempted to snatch a dane gun from a Vigilante personnel on interrogation was unable to give account of how he got the military uniform, or address of the unit where he is serving, hence he was detained for impersonation.

The statement reads "While in detention, police got information that the suspect and others at large abducted W/o2 military officer at about 11:30 pm of 16th July 2021and took him to their hideout in Alagbado Lagos State where he was stripped of his uniform, his identity card, his three ATM cards and phone before the victim escaped from them.

The police said it was the uniform of the military officer who was earlier kidnapped that the suspect was putting on to commit another crime before he was arrested. 

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun has ordered the transfer of the suspect to anti kidnapping unit of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation. The CP also ordered a massive manhunt for his other accomplices with a view to bringing them to justice.
