A gospel singer turned Nollywood actor, who recently released a gospel album has reportedly been arrested by operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, for the kidnap of a female banker at Mile 2 area of Lagos.
The suspect who has reportedly featured in movies like; The Eves and Friday Night was arrested alongside a gospel musician and two others at a building under construction in Mowe area of Ogun state.
The culprits were said to have kept their victim in an uncompleted building in Mowe, Ogun State for four days, while they waited for a response from the captives’ family.
However, the suspects were arrested by the FSARS officials while they were in the process of sharing the ransom gotten from the kidnap.
According to Chris Ezike, the Commissioner of Police in charge of the squad, the operatives acted on a tip-off, and deployed teams of policemen to the hide-out, where the suspected kidnappers were arrested and their victim rescued.
The police said: “The suspects were six in number. But three are on the run and we are on their trail. During interrogation, the actor said six of them came in a Toyota Corolla car and immediately they saw their target coming out of her Toyota Camry car, they pointed guns at her and drove her to their hideout in Mowe.”
“They also sold their victim’s jewellery for 8,000 and her pair of shoes for 3,700. He also stated that his share of the ransom was 450,000, but did not disclose how much they got, as the bargain was done between Jack and the victim’s family.”
The suspects have been reportedly charged to court for kidnap and robbery.
