The Police in Delta State have busted a notorious kidnapping gang terrorizing Oghara and neighbouring communities including Sapele and others.
The gang was dismantled just as an angry mob that had suffered untold hardship from the kidnapping/armed robbery gang, got hold of the wanted leader of the gang and set him ablaze in jungle justice fashion.
In a statement titled, ‘Death of a Wanted Kidnapping Kingpin/Armed Robber and Recovery of a double barrel cut to size gun and a cartridge’ Delta State police command said its operatives had earlier killed a member of the gang in a shootout and arrested his second in command.
The Police said, “On the 15th of August 2017, at about 11.50pm, information was received of a gang of robbers operating around Okhuro road, Oghara.
“The alarm raised attracted the newly re-organized Vigilantes and others. This prompted the robbers to take to their heels.
“One Magbejomo Ejiro of 52 Scot Road, Oghara was arrested and mobbed to death by an angry crowd, who identified him as the person in the last two kidnapping in the town which occurred in December 2016 and February 2017.
The Police maintained that the dead kingpin was on its wanted list saying, “It is worthy to note that his kidnapping syndicate was dismantled early in May of 2017, with the arrest of his 2i/c and death of another member.
It said, “Efforts are ongoing to apprehend other members of the gang.”
