Two men have been arrested by the Edo State Police Command for conniving to kidnap the branch Manager of Zenith Bank Ekpoma, Mr. Raphael Ibodeme.
According to the findings by the Police, the prime suspect, Alika, a security man at the bank, decided to carry out his plan after he was reprimanded by Mr. Ibodeme.
Alika went on to bring in Akhere to form a team. His recruit then brought on board Basiru Suleiman. However, Akhere, a former convict took the high road and decided to report the planned kidnapping to the police and the two men were nabbed.
He confessed to having a personal vendetta with his would-be victim, “I can confirm that I have been having issues with Mr Ibodeme, which led to the plan to kidnap him.”
On his part, Officer Bello Kontongs, the Police Public Relations Officer for Edo said the two men will be ragged before the court for prosecution on charges bordering on attempted kidnapping.
