Suspected kidnappers arrested by the police have given reasons why they abducted a man identified as Chuks Okoro.

 

In a viral video, one of the suspects, Obinna Onuorah, 39, said he was the one who orchestrated the abduction of their victim whom he referred to as Oga Chuks. According to him, he sold a piece of land to Oga Chuks for N2 million but the victim ended up paying N1.5 million. He said he resorted to kidnapping Oga Chucks when he failed to pay him the balance of N500, 000.

 

He said he immediately contacted his colleagues, Shebba, Crystal and Onwa who helped to plan out the abduction.

 

When interrogated, Shebba said his name is Tochi Chilaka, an indigene of Abor Mbaise. He confessed that after kidnapping Oga Chuks, he and the other gang members abducted another man at Abor Mbaise and Irite. He said it was their female gang member referred to as ‘Ashawo’ that contracted them for the job. He said the man they abducted at Irete.

 

One of the suspects who gave his name as Sunday, an indigene of Cross River state and also a former prison inmate, confessed to having also orchestrated the abduction of a drink merchant in his area. He said he knew the victim had money because he sold drinks wholesale. He said he had gone to prison for attempted murder.

 

A female member of the gang who gave her name as Comfort, was arrested for hiding the firearms used by the syndicate. Her husband, who is currently at large, was part of the kidnapping syndicate. The police apprehended Comfort in her compound while using the vehicle obtained from one of their victims to learn how to drive.

 We shall not fail Nigerians - Acting CJN Olukayode Ariwoola speaks

Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), has promised not to fail Nigerians after taking over from Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad, the former CJN who resigned on Sunday evening on health grounds. 

 

Addressing State House Correspondents after taking the oath of office, Ariwoola said with the support of his colleagues, the judiciary under him shall not fail Nigerians.

 

He said; 

 

“What Nigerians expect from me is to comply, preserve and abide and protect the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. And so be it. That is what I will do especially with the cooperation of my brother Justices of the Supreme Court. We shall not fail Nigerians.” 

 

On the current controversy at the supreme court, Ariwoola said; 

 

“There is no controversy in the Supreme Court. We are one with the Chief Justice. That’s why you heard the President said His Lordship, is disengaging on the grounds of ill-health. No controversy we’re one.”

 

On the welfare issues highlighted in the letter addressed to the former CJN, he said; 

 

“It was an internal memo of the court. It was not a petition. It was not a letter. It was addressed by the brother Justices of the Chief Justice and presented to him, His Lordship directly. There were issues to be resolved amongst justices.”

 

When asked if those issues would be resolved under his leadership, he said: “Yeah, we’ve started resolving it.”
