The team began an investigation after receiving a report on January 15, 2023. In the course of the investigation, they trailed one of the suspects, Abdullahi Ibrahim, to Kano State on Friday, May 12, 2023, and recovered a Black 2010 Toyota Matrix with Reg. No. SPR 283 TA and a Blue 2008 Toyota Camry with Reg. No. ABC 49 AT, both believed to have been snatched or stolen from Port Harcourt.
His arrest led to that of his accomplices, 23-year-old Tamunor Kubie Okari from Okrika, 20-year-old Vincent Kobani from Gokana Local Government Area and 22-year-old Monima George from Buguma, Asari Toru Local Government Area.
Three locally made pistols and two live cartridges were recovered from Vincent Kobani.
According to the State Police Spokesperson, SP Grace Iringe-Koko, the suspects confessed to the crime detailing how they forcefully snatched the Toyota Matrix from one of their victims and withdrew the sum of N209,000 using his GT Bank ATM card.
Sequel to an earlier arrest of a suspected kidnapper who kidnapped a woman and her daughter (names withheld) on Saturday, April 15, 2023, Operatives of the C4i Intel Unit raided an apartment on Plot 34 Lonpry Street, Trans Amadi and recovered one AK47 rifle with Breach No. 0637, three magazines loaded with thirty rounds of live ammunition each, two long single-barreled guns, and one live cartridge.
