The Police Command in Edo on Wednesday said that it had arrested five kidnap suspects in Ahon community bushes on the Benin/Lagos Road.
CP Philip Ogbadu, Commissioner of Police in the state, made this known when he paid a courtesy visit to Mr George Edem, Commandant, Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) at the corps command headquarters, in Benin.
Ogbadu said that the arrest followed a bush combing after the command received a distress call from the area.
He stressed the need for collaboration and support among sister security agencies to make their job in the state easier.
He said that the duties of security agencies were interwoven hence the need for interaction in the course of carrying out their responsibilities.
“We are here to serve the people of Edo, so there is a need for joint service for the good of the people.“I have tried to make an impact and a difference in the last 21 days after assuming office as the CP in the state. (Vanguard)
