Kayode Oluwadare The Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC) in Oyo State, Friday arrested four notorious Kidnappers in the Ibarapa area of the state.
Under the supervision of its state coordinator, Rotimi Olumo, the Group claimed it also arrested Isiaka Muhammadu, second in command to the dreaded kidnapper Wakilu.
The suspects were arrested during a search mission by OPC for the dreaded Wakilu who had been terrorising the entire area.
According to Olumo, Muhammadu had also offered important information that could aid the arrest of the kingpin.
The suspected kidnappers had been a cog in the attainment of peace in the community.
The four suspects have been handed over to the police and they are presently at the Ago Ranger, Civil Defence headquarters in Igbo Ora.
Meanwhile, the search mission, according to the coordinator, is still ongoing as the OPC was determined to rid the entire Southwest of kidnappers and other criminal elements.
The development was part of the success recorded through the recent Southwest Security Stakeholders Group (SSSG) held in Lagos.
Olumo said: “We are determined to rid the Southwest of criminal elements, including kidnappers and bandits, we are always ready to complement the efforts of the police and the southwest security Network (Amotekun) in the state, and we will not relent in this efforts."
