The Enugu State Police Command has arrested seven suspected kidnappers for allegedly kidnapping a woman, Roseline Nwokolo, at Oji River last month.
The victim was allegedly abducted and taken into a forest for a ransom.
Police spokesman Ebere Amaraizu said when security agents from the command were alerted, they found out the suspects’ hideout.
He said the police arrested one of the suspects, James Afamuefuna Agu, at Madoti Estate in Lagos State, following a tip-off.
Following Agwu’s alleged confession, the woman was rescued unhurt and Uchenna Nze (aka Akwaeke Junior), Olisa Nze (aka Mistake), Benjamin Mmuodebelu (aka Jack), Igwe Obinna, Kingsley Eze and Ekene Ani (aka Dada) were arrested over the matter.
Amaraizu said the suspects are assisting the police in their investigation.
Police Commissioner Musa Daura hailed his men for their doggedness.

He praised other security agencies and the public for giving the police credible information on crime prevention and detection.
The suspects, according to Amaraizu, promised to turn a new leaf, if they are released.
