Nigerian police pay N3 Million Ramson to free a Kidnapped DPO

New reports show that the Nigerian police force was unable to free their own man from kidnappers. As a result, they paid about N 3 million ransom to the kidnappers that abducted a DPO in Delta State. Sahara Reporter posted on its website.

According to Sahara reporter, “controversy has continued to trail the alleged N3m ransom paid by the Delta State Police Command to secure the release of the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Galilee Police Station in Ute-Ogbeje community under Ika North East Local Government Area of the state, who was kidnapped by unidentified gunmen on Saturday.

Our correspondent reliably gathered that the DPO identified only as Mr Okoro, was kidnapped between Onicha-Ugbo and Issele-Uku along the Benin-Asaba-Onitsha Expressway while on his way to Asaba, the state capital, for an official assignment.

However, the police commissioner denied the claim. Commissioner Adeyinka Adeleke, said, “Okoro was never kidnapped, insisting that it was the DPO’s friend that was abducted”. But he did not deny that the Ransom was paid.

It was not the DPO that was kidnapped; it was his friend that was abducted. Three suspects have been arrested.” He added.

Another source told Sahara reporter that Commissioner of police was lying, he said, “Why is the CP lying, everybody knows that it was DPO Okoro that was kidnapped but we also heard that he has been released since Sunday after the payment of N3m ransomAs we speak, the issue is causing serious controversy”.

“The DPO was going to Asaba for an official engagement when he was abducted and taken to an unknown location.”

Sahara reported claimed that a DPO was kidnapped and 3 million Ransom was paid for his release. But, the commissioner of police, Adeyinka Adeleke said that the report was false. We will continue to follow the story and bring you updates very soon.
