Alleged Killers Of NNPC Staff Paraded
Operatives of the Police Intelligence Response Team deployed by the Inspector General of Police to Port Harcourt have arrested six suspected kidnappers.
They are alleged to have abducted and killed John Iheanacho, a staff of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
The suspects were paraded on Sunday at the State Police Command in Port Harcourt.
Iheanacho was killed even after the kidnappers received ransom of N6million from his family.
The remains of deceased were recovered by the police on July 4.
It was gathered that Iheanacho, who was the President of Eastern Zone of Investment Cooperative Society Limited, was abducted and shot in March by the criminals and later taken to an uncompleted building in a community in Ndoki, Oyigbo where he died after some days.
His demise was hidden from the family about three months after his abduction until his corpse was found in a shallow grave at the camp by the police.
It was learnt that the six-man gang had trailed a man in a Toyota Camry to an estate in Irebe, a suburb of Port Harcourt, on March 20, 2018, but missed their target.
On their return from the operation in the night, they saw Iheanacho driving into the estate and went after him in their car.
The man was in front of his house when they intercepted him.
They were said to have shot him on the leg and whisked him away in his car to their camp.
It was gathered that they subsequently contacted the deceased’s wife and demanded a N50m ransom, which was later reduced to N6m.
The family reported the case to the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team as the gang failed to release the victim after the ransom was paid.
The operatives subsequently tracked down the suspects who led them to the camp where Iheanacho’s body was exhumed.
The Police listed items recovered from the suspects to include 1 AK47 Rifle and the two (2) vehicles used in the kidnap.
