According to the PRO, who gave the names of the suspects as Bekewei Agbojule, aka “Prince Yellow”, Philip Joel Kakadu, aka “General Kakadu,” a militant leader, Romeo Council, aka “Raw” and Totki Okoda, the arrest was a joint effort by the IGP’s Intelligence Response Team and the Force’s Tactical Intelligence Unit.

Concerted efforts are being made to arrest the remaining suspects who are at large. All the suspects will be arraigned in court on completion of investigation.”
The kidnappers abducted five Turkish School Children and three members of staff of the School in Ogun State on 13th January, 2017 and released them 11 days after upon collection of ransom.
