DSS Parades Kidnappers Of Two Sisters In Abuja




The Department of State Services has apprehended the kidnappers that were involved in the abduction of two sisters, Ejura and Unekwu Opaluwa at Karmo, Abuja on June 8, 2014.
The DSS Deputy Director, Public Relations, Marilyn Ogar explained that the leader of the kidnappers of two girls in Abuja, Asagba confessed to the crime, adding that the operation was carried out by him and four other gang members.

She said, “Paul had been arrested previously at a military checkpoint at Uke, Keffi LGA, Nasarawa State, while in possession of two Ak-47 rifles, magazines and 87 rounds of live ammunition.

“He was arraigned in court, convicted and sentenced to one and a half years in prison which he served at Keffi Prison in March 2013.

“Upon his release, he returned to his criminal activities and confessed that he kidnapped the two sisters at Life Camp, Abuja and that they collected N10m before releasing the victims, but they lied to the co-opted members that they received only N6m.”

The DSS stated that the gang co-opted Iko, the security guard at the victims’ residence who provided information on the movement of the Opaluwa family.


The service said that Iko had confided in a kinsman, Ezekiel, that his employer, the father of the kidnapped girls, kept money at home and it was Ezekiel who promised to introduce him to friends that could steal the money.

“Dikko was given N3,000 to buy a phone and SIM card for communication with the gang members,” Ogar explained.
