Police in Imo state have arrested a suspected kidnapper Nnamdi Ethelbert Ogidi who prefers kidnapping elderly women.
The 34-year-old Ogidi was arrested by detectives attached to the Anti-kidnapping Squad of the Imo State Police command.
He was said to have confessed to the police that he and his gang members had kidnapped 15 elderly women. His gang members are currently at large.
Ogidi was caught after he abducted Regina Nkwocha, a 74-year-old woman from Umuanyika, Ngorokpala area of Imo state.
According to reports, they were negotiating for N20million ransom when detectives busted their hideout at Umuaguma in Owerri west, on 23 May.
Ogidi, at the police station, confessed that he joined a gang of kidnappers five years ago.“I am from Imo state and after dropping out of senior secondary school, I learnt how to become a mechanic,” he said.
“Along the line I met bad friends who initiated me into the deadly cult group known as Debam fraternity. Most of them were into one bad thing or the other, so it was easy for me to join a gang of kidnappers who are also members of the cult.
“We derive pleasure in kidnapping elderly women and while their family members will be running around for ransom, we will take turns to rape the women.
“Our hideout is at Egbema local government. We prefer elderly women because it is easier to control them and their family members are always in a hurry to pay for their release” he said.

COVID-19: Kwara Govt. Approves N25,000 Daily Allowance For Doctors
The Kwara State Government has approved the payment of a daily N25,000 allowance for doctors in its employ, saying that the stipend is in appreciation for the sacrifices and efforts of frontline health workers in the state’s fight against the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
It said that the allowance payment would cut across all healthcare workers who were involved in the state’s Covid-19 response and that the amount payable to each cader would be determined according to the available categories.
The State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, confirmed the approval through a post on his social media page on Tuesday and expressed appreciation for the efforts of healthcare workers in the frontline of the state’s battle against coronavirus.
Abdulrazaq stated that no allowance could pay for the sacrifices being made by medical doctors and other healthcare workers in the state, but added that the daily disbursements would, however, acknowledge the esteem with which the government viewed its frontline respondents.
“We have approved N25,000 as daily allowance for medical doctors and varying daily allowance for other categories of health workers involved in our fight against COVID-19. This is to show appreciation to health workers as it’s impossible to pay them for their priceless sacrifices”, he said.

COVID-19: Share Facts, Not Panic
When the times are uncertain and filled with fears and worry, it is normal to want to share as much information with loved ones as you receive.
It is important, however, to be wary of sharing information that can be misleading or otherwise increase the fear and panic already being experienced by so many people connected to you.
Before you share information, ask yourself the following questions:
1) Where did this message originate from?
2) Does the information tally with information from the World Health Organisation or the NCDC?
3) How will this information affect the person I send this to psychologically?
Some messages can do more harm than good. Please, share only verified information from the NCDC and WHO, to stop the spread of fear, panic, and misinformation.
