Edafe disclosed that a victim of the suspects narrated how they invaded his residence at night, abducted him and forcefully collected a cash transfer of N2,500,000.

He said: “Six of their victims have also identified them; one of their victims stated that his house was stormed at night by the syndicate.

“They gained entrance into the compound by scaling the fence, broke into his apartment, forcefully abducted and took him away in a white Toyota Hiace bus.

“They forcefully collected his phones from him, other valuables worth N3,700,000, made a cash transfer of N2,500,000 and told him that they will come for him again,” the PPRO narrated.

In October, youths in Delta State barricaded some roads in parts of the State to protest what they described as the constant arrests of youths by EFCC operatives.
