A son of a prominent chief in Akoko area of Ondo state, Wasiu Mohammed has been arrested by security operatives for his involvement in kidnapping in the area.
Mohammed is a member of a seven- man kidnapping squad arrested in Akoko area by security operatives at the weekend.
Mohammed and his gang have been terrorising the people of Ajowa, Akunnu and Auga in Akoko area of Ondo state lately.
He was arrested through tracking of the phone he collected from one of the persons kidnapped.
His arrest and that of other members of the gang was made possible through combined efforts of soldiers, Police and Department of State Service (DSS) at Ajowa in Akoko Northwest local government area.
They met their Waterloo after abducting a 45-year old graduate teacher and Muslim Cleric, Alhaji Jamiu Zakariyahu at gunpoint last Wednesday night .
Zakariyahu escaped from the den of his abductors when they slept off in the bush.
His escape from the abductors led to the arrest of Mohammed and members of his gang.
