They also said a suspect had been arrested in connection with the crime.

The state command’s spokesperson, DSP Patricia Amadin, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that a staff member of De-Star Metal Company, Odonla in Ikorodu, with others still at large were in involved in the nefarious activity.

She said the Divisional Police Officer at Sagamu Road Station in Ikorodu got a tip-off of the kidnap and swung into action.

“Immediately the report was received, the DPO swung into action and began investigations to get the details.

“On Aug. 6, police detectives from the station visited the company and Timothy was arrested.’’
