According to him, “As soon as report was lodged with the police, the Government House Tracking Team was deployed to Warri and, at about 09.00 hours on July 19, the victim was rescued unhurt by the police through a bait of ransom.”
He gave the names of the suspects nabbed as Isaac, Kelvin, Blessing and Paul, adding that part of the ransom collected by the gang was recovered by the police.
