kidnap suspect, Philip Isiga, who was arrested by men of the Ondo State Police Command said he collected N50,000 from his cohorts who abducted two reverend sisters and their driver last month.
Nigerian Pilot recalls that the two sisters, Rev. Sr. Perpetual Apo and Rev. Sr. Roseline Familade and their driver, Mr. Zwugwa Zibai, were abducted on May 15 along the Benin-Ijebu-Ode Expressway at Kajola village in Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State, but were released a week after.
Parading the suspect at the headquarters of the command in Akure, at the weekend, the Commissioner of Police, Mrs. Hilda Harrison, explained that Isiga was involved in the abduction of the sisters.
The 25-year old suspect from Delta State said he was introduced to the business by one Ufoma, who was said to have been arrested, but is currently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.
Ufoma was alleged to be the leader of a kidnapping syndicate in the area and had participated in all the abduction that occurred in the area.
Isiga said “When my pure water business was not moving well again, Ufoma advised me to join him in his business, I didn’t know it was to kidnap people. I stayed in the bush when they abducted the sisters.’’
