A woman, Mrs. Ochuko Oloworo, abducted, on Monday, by four suspected kidnappers at Orhowhorun in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State, has escaped from her captors.
Meanwhile, two suspected kidnappers were arrested in the area with the aid of community youths, though it had not been ascertained if their arrest was connected to Mrs. Oloworo’s kidnap.
Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Famous Ajieh, confirmed the victim’s escape and the arrest of two kidnap suspects.
He said: “Mrs. Oloworo was kidnapped and her Jeep snatched by four armed men at Orhowhorun. They blindfolded her and gagged. She was taken to a hideout by her captors from where she escaped.”
He said that acting on a tip-off, police detectives “combed the bush in Ewereka town, close to an uncompleted building, where she was kept, but no one was found there. Surveillance had been placed on the house and the town.”
On the arrest of the two-suspected kidnappers, he said they were arrested with the assistance of community youths with blackberry phones, adding that the police were yet to ascertain their involvement in the kidnap of Mrs. Oloworo.
