Here is the latest news about Abuja big boy, John Lyon whose brother, David, almost became Bayelsa governor, arrested for kidnapping
A so-called Abuja-based big boy, John Lyon, whose elder brother, David Lyon, almost became governor of Bayelsa State in 2019, was arrested by police for allegedly being a member of a kidnap syndicate responsible for several high-profile abductions and robberies in the state and other parts of the Niger Delta..
David Lyon was the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the 2019 Bayelsa gubernatorial election. He was declared the winner of the election, but a day before his inauguration as governor, the Supreme Court ruled that his running mate, Degi Eremienyo Wangagra, had submitted a forged certificate to INEC. The Supreme Court ordered that Douye Diri, the PDP’s second-place finisher in the election, be given a certificate of return and sworn in as governor.
Prior to his arrest and exposure as a suspected kidnap and armed robbery kingpin on Saturday, John Lyon was well-known for flaunting large sums of money on social media and encouraging his followers to “hustle,” as well as giving motivational talks to Nigerian youths about the importance of hard work.
He also posted photos of himself with police officers acting as bodyguards at an APC event and at a church service where he is seen singing and praising God.
He also used an interior design firm in Abuja as a source of wealth for Ajia, while lavishing millions on singers and actresses.
However, his cover was said to have been blown when he was tracked down and apprehended by a crack police squad in Abuja on Saturday.
In viral videos following his arrest, David Lyon is seen kneeling on the floor, handcuffed and wearing only boxers, weeping profusely and pleading for mercy, claiming that his wife had just given birth.
During questioning, he admitted to being a kidnapper but claimed to have only kidnapped two people.
However, in the video, a man who claimed to be one of David Lyon’s victims contradicted him, claiming that he had kidnapped more than two people.
The man went on to describe how David Lyons’ gang kidnapped him and threatened to kill him unless he paid a large ransom.
