LAGOS NOVEMBER 9TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The kidnappers of the British volunteer who was shot dead in Delta State, Dr. Ian Squire, have met their waterloo.

They then volunteered to lead the police to Sapele, also in Delta State, where the other members of the gang were. In Sapele, one of the kidnappers was sighted by the gang members already arrested.
