The suspects, 45-year-old Ogun Goddey, Ijeoma Uzor, 35 and Obiose Cornelius, also 35, were chairman, vice chairman and member respectively of Ashaka vigilante group.

The suspects allegedly abducted Destiny, a nephew of Friday Osanebi, a member of Delta State House of Assembly, at about 9.30 pm on July 16, at the family residence in Ashaka, Ndokwa East Local Government Area.

The toddler was held by the kidnappers for three days, as they negotiated a N10 million ransom with the distraught family.
