Fifteen kidnap suspects have been arrested by the Oyo State Police Command. They allegedly abducted officials of West African Exam Council (WAEC).
The suspects, who may be herdsmen, are teenagers. They spoke in Hausa.
They confessed that they worked for a man, simply identified as Kire, a notorious robber from Zamfara State. Four locally-made single barrel guns, three cutlasses, seven phones, N67,000 and a Bajaj motorcycle: 607 WZ, were recovered from them.
Leader of the kidnappers, Mohammed Kote, 25, and Kire Babuga, 20, were arrested on Kishi/Igboho Road and in the Old Oyo National Park, Igbeti.
