Police Invades Lagos Hotel and Arrests 3 Kidnappers of Babington Schoolgirls

The School

Police operatives attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) have arrested three more suspects involved in the kidnapping of three female students of Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary (BMJS) in Ikorodu, Lagos State.

Three more suspects involved in the kidnapping of three female students of Babington Macaulay Junior Seminary (BMJS) in Ikorodu, Lagos State, has been arrested by Police operatives attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in the state.

It can be recalled that the female students, Timilehin Olosa, Tofunmi Popoolaniyan and Deborah Akinayo, were kidnapped by a 12-man armed gang from their school on the night of February 29, 2016 but were rescued on March 2.

This new arrest has brought the total number of suspects in police custody to six, as the state police command in conjunction with the Special Intelligence Response Team (SIRT), had earlier arrested three other suspects.

Those arrested almost two weeks ago were the kingpin of the kidnapping and armed robbery syndicate, Emmanuel Arigidi, James Henry and Akanju Oluwasegun.

It was gathered that the second batch of kidnapping suspects were tracked through their phone lines with the assistance of telecom network providers, following which the police stormed a hotel in Lagos and arrested three of them at the weekend.

A police source said: "Three more suspects were arrested at the weekend in their different hotel rooms. We tracked them through the network providers and they have confessed that they were the ones who cooked for the girls and ensured that they did not escape.

"They told us that they fed the girls with Indomie noodles. The suspects also informed us that they had attempted to kidnap the girls twice but succeeded in their third attempt."
