The suspects, Isaiah Ododomu and Toba Forejo said nine members were involved in the abduction and that they took to kidnapping after security operatives had foiled their operation which involved oil bunkering. Isaiah said: “I was involved in illegal bunkering. As this government stopped bunkering, our leaders arranged another group and this mission of the new group was to start kidnapping and use it to manage ourselves since we can’t do oil bunkering again. I am a married man, I don’t have any job to do. We used to do security for those main guys and anytime they make about N500, 000 they will give us like N20,000.
