The Ondo State Police Command has vowed to arrest the abductors of Regina Akinrinmade, wife of the Orunja of Odigbo Kingdom, Oba Rufus Akinrinmade, her two daughters and driver who were all released on Friday.
The command’s spokesman, Femi Joseph, who disclosed this on Sunday, said the investigation was in top gear to arrest the perpetrators.
The members of the royal family, who were abducted on December 21 along the Owo-Oba-Akungba Akoko Road, were released after six days in captivity.
The abductors had earlier demanded N100 million ransom but later reduced the demand to N60 million.
Joseph, who said the police had worked vigorously for the victims to be released, said he was not aware of any ransom placed on the royal family by their abductors.
He also warned kidnappers and other criminals not to take the state as a safe haven, saying ‘’the police would foil their plans, arrest and ensure they face the wrath of the law.”
He said: “It is not out of place to give kudos to the police because we have been working tirelessly for the victims’ release since their abduction.
“We are not aware of any ransom placed on the family but I can assure you that investigation is ongoing to arrest the perpetrators of the heinous crime for them to face the wrath of the law.” (NAN)
