      Police arrest kidnapper posing as lunatic in Lagos

      Police arrest kidnapper posing as lunatic in Lagos

      The Nigeria Police Force has issued a cautionary advisory to citizens, urging them to exercise vigilance against criminal activities.

      This warning comes in the wake of the arrest of Olaseinde Ojo, a suspected armed robber and kidnapper, in Lagos State. Ojo, who adopts the guise of a lunatic to lure unsuspecting victims, was apprehended by law enforcement authorities.

      Disclosing this development was the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement released on Thursday. Adejobi highlighted the ongoing efforts of the NPF in combating crime nationwide.

      He mentioned notable achievements, including the apprehension of several criminals involved in heinous acts, by operatives in Lagos State and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

      One such arrest occurred at the Post Office, Isokoko, where Olaseinde Ojo was nabbed for his involvement in armed robbery and kidnapping activities. Ojo’s modus operandi involved masquerading as a lunatic to deceive his victims before perpetrating crimes against them.

      Furthermore, another arrest was made along Dolphin Bridge, where a dispatch rider named Samson Shina was found in possession of a locally made pistol and charms.

      Additionally, in the FCT, operatives conducting stop-and-search duties apprehended a motorcycle carrying three passengers, one of whom was Usman Musa. Upon inspection, a locally fabricated Beretta pistol with live ammunition was discovered in their possession. Subsequent searches at their premises yielded counterfeit US dollars amounting to $5,800, along with other incriminating items.

      In light of these developments, the NPF emphasized the importance of citizens remaining vigilant and prioritizing their safety. With rising incidents of theft, defilement, and assault, individuals are urged to adopt proactive measures. This includes being observant of their surroundings, particularly in unfamiliar or poorly lit areas, and securing their belongings. Furthermore, any suspicious activities should be promptly reported to the authorities for necessary action.
