Three suspected kidnappers who reportedly confessed to their crime were on Friday arrested by local vigilantes in a hotel at Awhum community, Udi local government area of Enugu state.

The fourth suspected kidnapper who was said to be armed was said to have escaped while a female victim was rescued in the hotel.

A community’s source who made the disclosure to Vanguard said that the arrested kidnappers were taken to the ninth-mile police station where they confessed to the crime and were taken into custody at the police station on Friday.

Enugu state Police Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe however said he was not aware of the development and requested Vanguard to send him a text message with which he will use to make an inquiry.

The hotel was said to belong to a former political office holder from the community who is scarcely in the community and was probably not aware of the goings-on in the facility.

Vanguard source said:
“The kidnappers were arrested in the hotel in Awhum and they are at the 9th-mile police station now (Saturday morning) and a female victim was rescued. The local vigilantes were the ones that arrested them and they confessed that they had been operating from that hotel and terrorizing the Awhum environs for a very long time.

“Our community wants such a practice to stop and that hotel should not be harbouring people like that. The rescued victim said she was raped and that the kidnappers have been molesting her since they captured her while asking for ransom. The capture and rescue took place on Friday,”
the community leader said.
