Five suspects, including a 20-year-old woman, have been arrested by Nigeria’s Delta state Command of the State Security Service (SSS) over two kidnap cases.

The command also nabbed three other suspects, including two brothers, for allegedly blackmailing a director in the Petroleum Training Institute (PTI), Effurun in Delta with a fake pornographic photograph of him.

Parading the suspects in Asaba on Thursday, the state Director of SSS, Mrs Florence Ikanone, said that the woman and four others, kidnapped one Sunday Elueni, on April 13.

Ikanone said that the incident, which took place in a village near Ozoro, in Isoko North Local Government Area of Delta, was masterminded by the woman, who was a mistress to the victim.

She said that the gang collected N800,000 ransom, which was shared among them, but that at the time of their arrest on July 25, two of them were at large.

The woman told newsmen later that she received N100,000 from the ransom, while her accomplices received between N80,000 and N95,000 each.

Ikanone said that the others were arrested for sending threat messages to Mr David Ighovojah, Senior Special Assistant to the Deputy Governor of Delta.

She said the duo demanded “with menace”, the sum of N7 million from Ighovojah to save him from being kidnapped, and also designed, printed and superimposed pornographic pictures of the director.

The SSS director added that the suspects sent threat messages to the man to pay some money to them so as to stop the pictures from being made public.

She said all the suspects would be charged to court soon.
