3 suspected kidnappers nabbed in failed bid to abduct victim

A man posted a video on Facebook appreciating his community members for aiding in capturing the suspected kidnappers.

Akinwande Ogundana, who shared the clip on Facebook was thanking God and members of his community for foiling the attempt of the suspects as they aimed to abduct his wife - a full grown woman.

Conversations heard in the video suggested that the trio had the intention to whisk away the unnamed victim via a motorcycle in broad day. A scene in the footage saw them lie on a blood-stained floor as a group of people directed disparaging comments at them as well as some blows.

The seriousness of their plight was clear to them from their sober faces - they had chosen a wrong trade and have met their waterloo. An arrival of the police would mean their last hour as free men.

Cases of kidnapping have been a constant concern for security personnel in the country. Many of these have been for ritual purposes where the perpetrators receive a meagre fee after making a delivery to a higher person who has kept them under his employ.

Notorious kidnapping kingpin Evans made headlines earlier in 2017, following his arrest by the police. It has so far been the most viral criminal matter this year. Investigations conducted by law enforcement officers led to the uncovering of a number of affiliates who worked with him in the kidnapping business.

No verdict has been determined on the case in what has seen a dedicated Nigeria Police Force, who showed determination despite criticism from members of the public.
