The six kidnappers that were remanded are: Emmanuel Arigidi, 37: Gift Pius, 30: Omoni Rufus Fred, 32: Owei Omobo Geofrey, 38: Akanji Seun, 38: and James Henry Segun, 29.
Magistrate Adeleja ordered their remand, following a remand application filed and argued by the lawyer to the Police, Mr. Godwin Osuyi.

Osuyi, while arguing the remand application said the application was brought in pursuant to section 264(1) and (2), of the administration of Criminal Justice of Lagos State, 2011.

He further informed the Court that the remand application was to enable the Directorate of Public Prosecution, DPP, to issue an advice on the matter.

He therefore urged the court to remand the suspects for the first 30 days, pending when the advice will be issued by the DPP.

However, the six suspects who were represented by Mr. Ola Ogunbiyi did not oppose the application.
