The command in a statement by its Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, noted that okada riders are in the habit of violently attacking any motorist involved in an accident with their member, and in most cases preventing accident victims from being taken to hospital for medical attention.

A family source who does not want to be named said an undisclosed amount of money was paid as ransom, but the state command of the Nigeria Police has denied any ransom was paid.

The command’s Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspects, identified as Balogun Opemipo (26) and Onabanjo Korede (27), were arrested after the vigilante, Salami Azeez, reported at Ijebu Igbo Police Station on how he was attacked by the cult members.

Spokesman of the Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi said that operatives from relevant units have been drafted to Ijebu-Igbo in Ijebu North local government area to rescue the monarch but have neither located the abductee nor the abductors.

It says that intelligence at its disposal reveals that kidnappers position their operational vehicle by the road side, pretending to be out for commercial services, with about four members of the gang posing as passengers in the vehicle.
