Delta State Police Command has said that most of the kidnap cases in the state, including the recent kidnap of the state Commissioner for Higher Education, Prof. Hope Eghagha, had been traced to the handiwork of insiders.
State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Charles Muka, said the command was still trailing the kidnappers of Professor Eghagha, whose whereabouts were still unknown, one week after his abduction.
Muka, in a statement in Asaba, yesterday, said: “Delta State Police Command’s war against kidnapping and other violent crimes had been successful in the last few months.
“The successes we recorded were as a result of cooperation and collaboration from well meaning Deltans. It should be noted that no kidnap case was recorded in the months of August and September 2012 within Asaba and environs.”
