A kidnap suspect, Linus Nlemadim, shocked his captors yesterday when he expressed readiness to reveal the names of his gang members.
Nlemadim was allegedly arrested in connection with the recent kidnap of one Eziopara Ben Anyanwu, an American-based indigene of Imo State.
It was gathered from a source that the suspect vowed that he would not die alone.
“The suspect said he was ready to mention the names of members of the gang that were involved ing the crime, and that there was no way he would die alone,”
“True to his threat, the suspect released the name of another colleague of his. This led to the arrest of his accomplice from Ngor Okpala Local Government Area.
“I believe they will be telling the police all they know about the alleged crime.”
A community leader said that the 2 suspects, who linked Linus Nlemadim to the deal, were natives of Upe and Umunam in Ngor Okpala Local Government Area. The source said one of the kidnappers was caught when he went to Umuovum, Ulakwo to sell an i-Pad they had stolen.
“The man, who indicated interest in buying the gadget unlocked the equipment, saw the images of the kidnapped Ben Anyanwu and quickly brought the police into the picture,” the source said.
