Asaba—A couple, which fled  from Rivers State to  Delta State after  their alleged involvement in serial kidnap cases had been arrested.

They were picked up from their hideout in a remote village, Ejeme Aniogor, Delta State, following a tip-off.
State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Charles Muka, who confirmed the arrest, described them as “notorious criminals.”

He said: “We received information that a stranger with his wife from Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State were staying in Ejeme Aniogor. As a result, a patrol team from Ogwashi-Uku was dispatched to the village, where the two were arrested.

“The couple (names withheld) actually confessed to series of kidnappings and armed robbery in Rivers State and that they came to Ejeme to avoid arrest. The suspects had been handed over to the Federal Special Anti-Robbery team for further  investigation.”
