THE Edo State Police Command is investigating the circumstances that led to the death of 17-year-old Godspower Idejerhoyibo, who was abducted, penultimate Friday, while returning from school in Obe community.

Police Commissioner David Omojola, who paraded three suspects, Daniel Etido (21), Godday Ogbeiye (25) and Kelvin Ogimwonyi (20), allegedly involved in the abduction of Godspower, explained that Etido, a friend of the deceased’s family, led three others to kidnap their victim.

Omojola said the arrests came about 24 hours after the suspects allegedly committed the crime, but after their victim had died. According to him, “one Godspower Idjerhoyibo was kidnapped by a three-man gang of kidnappers led by Godpower’s close friend, Daniel Etido.

“Police immediately swung into action and, on November 12, Daniel Etodo was arrested. Investigation revealed that the victim was returning from school when he was accosted by the friend who had arranged the kidnapping”, the commissioner said.

Etido, who admitted spearheading the crime, told Sunday Vanguard that he and fellow suspects planned on demanding a ransom of N500,000 to release their victim, adding that he recruited his arrested colleagues, one of whom he referred to as a native doctor, to assist in executing the plot. The alleged native doctor among them, Ogbeye, according to Etido, who hails from Akwa-Ibom State, made it possible for the gang to abduct the boy without resorting to the use of arms.

He narrated: “Thursday (penultimate week) we (three) organised to carry the boy for ransom. Eventually when we kidnapped the boy, we kept him in an uncompleted building. One of us (Ogbeye) went to bring food but he delayed and, while I went in search of him, I was accosted and arrested by the police. The native doctor’s charm made it easy for us to catch him without shooting. Honestly, I don’t know why he died but I think it was hunger. I am really sorry and shocked”.

The suspect claimed the victim was tied with ropes. “We used charms to make the kidnapping easy and without having to carry gun… We planned to ask for N500, 000 to release him, but we did not plan to kill him; maybe he died of hunger.” However, Ogiemwonyi and Ogbeye denied taking part in the crime, saying that they were being framed up.

so sad... but there's no way the boy could have died just 24 hours after he was kidnapped due to just hunger. There's more to the story than is being told.
