Police in Osun have apprehended four suspected Fulani herdsmen, including one of those who abducted Professor Olayinka Adegbehingbe of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU).
The suspects, currently being quizzed by the police, were said to be giving clues to their interrogators on their nefarious activities in the past few months.
The suspects, whose names were given as Hussman Ladan from Sokoto, Samaila Gede, Kemu Rejuli from Niger and Jubril Momhammed, were apprehended in Apomu-Ibadan axis.
Parading the suspects yesterday, the state Police Commissioner, Abiodun Ige, said the suspected kidnappers were identified by the victim.
She said: “The command, through the Operation Puff Harder, in collaboration with the community policing, got reliable information that led to the arrest of the suspects who have been terrorising the Ikire axis and particularly at the suspected kidnapper of Professor Adegbehingbe and one Alfa Sule from Niger who was wandering around along the Ikire axis.
“When the police carried out an identification parade on the suspects, the kidnapped OAU professor identified one of them as one of his adductors.”
Also paraded along with the kidnappers were suspected student cultists while preparing for their annual event tagged 7/7 to unleash terror on their targeted victims.
Ige, however, charged members of the public to cooperate with the police always to fish out undesirable elements from the society.
