A 33-year-old man, Anthony Egidi, has said he joined kidnapping business in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, out of frustration and had made millions from kidnapping no fewer than seven persons in Lagos, Benin, and in Delta State.
KidnapperAccording to the Police, other suspects include Steve, Tony, Nyerowo, Steve and late Apopfure, who died during a gun duel with police in Lagos.
It was gathered that the suspects operated with two AK-47 rifle and three local guns, which have been recovered from them.
Egidi was arrested on October 26 in Ekenwan, Benin, Edo State, by Lagos State Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, led by Abba Kyarri.
Egidi, who is a native of Delta State and married with two children, resides at Awoyaya Ibeju, Lekki Road, said his first operation was “when we kidnapped a woman in Warri, Delta State on October 2011 and I got N280,000.
“During the first and second operations, the gang did not disclose the venue to me. They blindfolded me because I was new in the team.
“After the second job, we moved to Benin to kidnap a man. I was given N100,000. I believed it was a cool business.
“The third operation made me a millionaire, because I was given N2.8 million.
“I drove the gang in that operation, but I did not know where they kept the woman. We collected N9 million in the fourth operation. When we kidnapped a man in Benin, I was also given N1.5 million.
“We moved to Delta State between Oroku and Abeh Road, where we kidnapped a man. I was given N3.5 million.
“After making millions of naira in South-East, we moved to South-West. Our sixth operation was at Eleko Junction, Ajah in June. We collected N1.6 million ransom from the person and I was given 300,000.
“The seventh operation was when we kidnapped a Keystone Bank worker on her way home. We were seven when we attacked her.
“We took her to a bush, where she spent six days. We did not defile her. We gave her everything she requested for and we usually buy her food from Mr. Biggs and some other places.
“We told her family to pay N6 million. Even the woman was ready to give us N10 million.
“One of our guys was arrested when he went to collect the money. When police arrived, we exchanged fire with them and lost two members.
“I used the money to buy a car, four plots of land in Benin, one plot in Lagos and opened a supermarket for my wife.
“My wife believed I was a welder. She only got to know what I do when I was arrested.”
