Detectives in the Ondo state Police Command for have arrested a man who called himself an actor, Onyeke Michael, over an attempt to kidnap  two children of the same parents  in Ore area of the state.

Michael was paraded alongside 12 other armed robbery suspects said to be tormenting the people of the state in recent times.

The state Commissioner of Police, Isaac Eke said the middle age actor attempted to kidnap one Yusuf Eniola, aged three years and Aisat Eniola, aged two on the 13th of this month.

According to him, Eke pointed out that the accused was found with the two children around Ecobank, Ondo road, Ore and he could not explain satisfactorily how he came about the victims.

He said the timely intervention of the Police saved the suspect from being lynched by the mob.

But the suspect in an interview said that he was only trying to help the children to cross the road when he was apprehended.

The state Commissioner of Police explained that  eight of the armed robbers arrested were living together in a single  room apartment when they were arrested in Odo Alafia street Ondo town.

Items recovered from them include one cut- to- size single barrel, one expended cartridge, one UTC axe, one cutlass, hammer, sword, knife, army belt and a complete pair of Vigilante Group of Nigeria uniform.

The police boss said all the accused persons have confessed to be members of a gang of armed robbers terrorizing the people of Ondo town and its environs while some of the victims they had earlier robbed identified the robbers.

The Commissioner therefore assured the people of the state of security of lives and property during and after the Easter period.
