Edo State Commissioner for Communications and Orientation, Chris Nehikhare, says security operatives have arrested one of the suspected kidnappers involved in the abduction of 32 passengers at the Igueben train station.
Nehikhare disclosed this during a press briefing in Benin City.
He added that one victim escaped the kidnapper’s den.
The commissioner pledged support for security operatives to avert the recurrence of such incidents in the state.
“After 32 kidnapped persons, security operatives and local hunters swung into action, combing the bushes around the environment. One of the kidnapped victims escaped the kidnapper’s den,” he said.
