Police demolish alleged kidnappers’ houses in Imo
Labour, govt clash over workers strike
Following the rising cases of kidnapping from across the nation, the Imo State Police Command, in partnership with the state government, has demolished houses belonging to two alleged kidnap kingpins.
The demolished houses were said to have been built by a 27-year-old suspected kidnapper, John Chima, a.k.a America, and another Kingpin, Anderson Ahaneku, all in Ohuba, Ohaji Egbema Local Council area of the state.
It is believed that the houses, which served as den for the kidnappers, might have been built with proceeds from their ill-gotten wealth.
A similar exercise was earlier carried out in a suspected notorious criminal hide out in Okigwe.
The deputy governor, Eze Madumere and state Commissioner of Police, Taiwo Lakanu, witnessed the demolition, among other community members.
Madumere commended the police for the feat in tracking down criminals in the state, adding that government would continue to give them adequate support within the available resources.
The deputy governor warned criminals to desist from criminal acts, adding that the demolition was a deterrent to others who might want to do such.
