Prior to the kidnap kingpin arrest, members of his syndicate were arrested some 5 days ago.

Recall, two members of his gang were found hiding out in Makurdi last week and they admitted to the crime, Anene said.

The kingpin was apprehended by members of operation Zenda. If you recall, the police commissioner had promised to apprehend the kingpin; he has since been apprehended and has admitted to the crime.

According to the alleged kingpin, they specialized in kidnapping women because they were simple targets.

He expressed regret for having Justice Iorhemen Hwande, a former chief judge of Benue State, and the man he referred to as his uncle, have their home demolished.

“The late Chief Judge was my uncle, and I spent the last six years working as a sales boy selling tiles with his son.

“Last year, I began my kidnapping business. We are three; the other two have been detained, but I regret what I did, particularly because it resulted in my uncle’s home being demolished,” Samuel said.
