On 18/9/2021 at about 1000hrs, Captain Godfrey Zwallamark (Rtd) was abducted by three armed men on a motor bike. However, in the course of investigation, Operatives of the FIB (IRT) led by CSP Ahmadu Adamu, acting on credible information arrested three suspects namely:

1. Frank Ishie ’m’ 39yrs from Utagba Ogbe Community in kwale Ndokwa East Delta State. He is the gang leader of the notorious criminal gang. He has confessed to have carried out four separate kidnap operations in Eleme and Igbo Etche Communities. He is also the person who shot the victim on the foot where he bled to death on the same day he was kidnapped.

2. Iwuji Reginald ‘m’ 38yrs from Ngugu Community in Ikeduru Local Government Area of Imo State. He is the second in command and the driver of the deadly criminal gang.

3. Gomba Okparaji ‘m’ 34yrs from Agbonchia in Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State. He is the gang member who, not only brought the job (kidnapping) but also lured the victim, where he was eventually taken hostage.

Recall that when the victim was kidnapped the kidnappers established contact with the victim’s family and demanded for Two Hundred Million Naira (200,000,000.00) as ransome. The victim’s phone which was used for negotiation was recovered from them, including Two ATM cards belonging to the deceased. 

Investigation is still ongoing. Today we are here to exhume the remains of the victim for Autopsy and possible burial.

It could be noted that, though the victim is dead but his killers will face the Law and justice will be brought to bear in circumstance. 

What is important is that they have been arrested and will be dealt with according to Law as it would serve as deterrent to others. Criminals have short lifespan as their days are always numbered.
