Three suspected kidnappers were arrested and brutally beaten for allegedly abducting a little boy in Bayelsa state.

It was gathered that the suspects, Miracle a.k.a Mimi, Wari-Owei and Emi Nokuba were members of a 6-man kidnap gang that abducted the victim in Agudama-Epie, Yenagoa on Friday afternoon, October 8.

The suspects allegedly collected N50,000 ransom from the victim’s family before releasing him.

According to report, the gang leader, Emi Nokuba, said to be the mastermind behind the abduction, was previously paraded by the community youths last years for stealing diesel from a widow.

Miracle and Wari-Owei were arrested on Friday night, while Nokuba was apprehended at his house by community youths in the early hours of Saturday.

According to a community leader, Izibeyame Prudent, the suspects have been handed over to the police after their ‘normal drilling’.
