The Police authorities in Rivers State have arrested a suspected kidnapper said to be the most wanted in the State, Honest Digbara, popularly known as Boboski.
Boboski, said to have come from Nwidera, Gokana Local Government Area was nabbed at Korokoro community in Khana Local Government where he was hiding with his gang members.
Confirming this to Journalists at the State Police Headquarters in Port Harcourt on Saturday, September 12, 2020, the State Commissioner of Police, CP Joseph Mukan, said the arrest of the criminal followed credible information by members of the public.
According to CP Mukan, Boboski and his gang members were responsible for the kidnapping and killing of one Barrister Emelogu after collecting ransom.
He also blamed the group for the killing of a Divisional Police Officer in Afam Division, Mr Moses Egbede, killing of a civil defence at Glo pipeline, the kidnap and killing of Chief Mbu of Ogu/Bolo after collecting 7 million naira as ransom among others.
Although the suspect was arrested alive, a Channels Television correspondent observed that several gunshots could not penetrate his body; reporting also that several attempts made by Boboski to disappear was resisted by the Police.
The reports added that the suspect, however, died from matchet cuts.
Sequel to his arrest, Governor Nyesom Wike had earlier placed a 30 million naira bounty on Boboski’s head, saying he will reward any member of the public who can provide useful information that will lead to the arrest of the criminal
