Friday Okeregbe

Okeregbe was abducted on March 22 but was released last week after a police operation that also saw three suspects taken into custody.

According to deputy police commissioner Frank Mba, Okeregbe โ€“ who police believe was not the main target of the kidnappers โ€“ was taken to a den in Karimo, Abuja, where he was held captive.

The three suspects have been named as Haniel Patrick, Abdulwahab Isah and Salisu Mohammed. They were arrested on April 9, with police also recovering weaponry believed to belong to the men.

The police have said they will do all they can to arrest other members of the gang involved and have urged anyone who can aid the process to come forward with their information.
