The Osun state police command says it has arrested one of the suspected kidnappers of Yinka Adegbehingbe, a professor at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife.

Parading the suspects on Tuesday at the command’s headquarters in Osogbo, Abiodun Ige, the commissioner of police, said the lecturer identified Ladan Usman from Sokoto state, among those who kidnapped him.

In May, Adegbehingbe, who was travelling with his wife from Lagos, was kidnapped near Ikire on the Ife-Ibadan expressway. He was later released after N5 million ransom was paid to his abductors.

Ige said the police nabbed the suspect through reliable information from residents in the community.

“The command through the operation Puff Arder, in collaboration with the community support, got a reliable information that led to the arrest of some hoodlums who have been terrorising the Ikire axis and particularly the kidnap suspect of Prof. Adegbehingbe and one Alfa Sure from Niger State, who was wandering around along the Ikire axis,” she said.

“The police carried out an identification parade on the suspect and the professor identified one of them.”

Other suspects paraded were Samaila Gede, Jubril Momhammed, both from Katsina, and Kemu Rejuli from Niger Republic, who were reported to be in possession of assorted charms.
