Operatives of the Intelligence Response Team have arrested members of a kidnap syndicate, who allegedly killed three of their victims, after collecting ₦7.5 million ransom from their family members.

The Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba, disclosed this in Abuja on Monday, while parading 26 suspects arrested for kidnapping, armed robbery, unlawful possession of firearms and other sundry offences.

According to Mba, the kidnap syndicate had abducted one Dr Ausu Benedict, his son, and a friend on their way to Abuja.

While in captivity, the suspects were said to have contacted the families of their victims, who subsequently paid a total of ₦7 million to secure the abductees’ release.

“Before the ransom was paid, the suspects had forced Benedict to raise a cheque of ₦500,000 which was successfully cashed,” the police said.

Mba, however, regretted that the syndicate went ahead to kill their victims, notwithstanding the payment of ransom.
