Officers of Joint Military Task Force (JTF)

WARRi: Two hoodlums have been arrested in Effurun by the Joint Task Force, JTF, in the Niger Delta, Operation Pulo Shield. Effurun is the headquarters of Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State.
The hoodlums were arrested for abducting a 52-year-old grandmother and top official of the Petroleum Training Institute, PTI, Effurun, (names withheld)
The suspects, Tadafe Egwolo and Kelvin Ovwie, both 25 years old, who hail from Effurun, also raped their victim at a popular hotel in the area, before demanding N10million ransom for her to be released.
The suspects were apprehended by the troops of Sector 1 Command of JTF in Effurun, following a distress call by the victim
They were paraded before journalists at the headquarters of 3rd Battalion of the Nigerian Army, Effurun, at the weekend.
Findings by Our Correspondent showed that the grandmother of two was abducted at PTI Junction on Tuesday last week by the hoodlums, who later whisked her to Room 602 in the hotel, where she was serially raped by the suspects.
They also took snapshots of the nefarious act. They later freed her to enable her source for the N10 million to save her life and prevent the pictures from being made public. They threatened to kill her if she failed to produce the money within one week.
The authorities of the JTF asked the woman to play along with the hoodlums when she reported her case at the military formation. They were subsequently apprehended when they came for the ransom at PTI Junction on Tuesday.
