I collected N50,000 as my share in the abduction of reverend sisters – Suspect

A man identified as Philip Isiga who was one of the suspects arrested by the men of the Ondo State Police Command
has said he was given the sum of N50,000 from the money made
from the abduction of the two Reverend Sisters and their driver last month.

The two sisters, Rev. Sister Perpetual Apo and Rev. Sister Roseline Familade and their driver, Mr. Zwugwa Zibai were abducted on May 15, 2016, on Benin-Ijebu Ode Expressway at Kajola village in Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State but were released a week after .

Parading the suspect, along with some other suspects at the headquarters of the command in Akure, the state
capital on Friday, the state commissioner of police, Mrs. Hilda Harrison, explained that Isiga was involved in the abduction of the sisters.

The 25-year-old suspect from Delta State said he was introduced to the business of kidnapping by one Ufoma, who was
said to have been arrested too but currently receiving treatment at
an undisclosed hospital in the state .

Ufoma was also alleged to be the leader of the kidnapping syndicate in the area and was also said to have participated in all the abduction that had occurred in the local government area.

Isiga said, ” When my pure water business was not moving well again, Ufoma came to me and advised me to join him in his business, I didn’t know it was a kidnapping work. I stayed in the bush when they abducted the sisters.

” Later, Ufoma told me he collected N200,000 from the family of the victims and he gave me N50,000 out of it as
my own share. ”

On how and where they kept their victims after the abduction, the suspect who lived at Idepe in Okitipupa Local
Government Area of Ondo State said he did not participate in the kidnapping, saying it was the leader, Ufoma who could answer that question .

To this end, the police commissioner said the command were already on the trail of other fleeing suspects, saying
the one arrested would soon be charged to court .

She said, ” I want to state that Ondo State has zero tolerance for hoodlums and we will ensure that the state
is free from all forms of criminalities. I, therefore, enjoin our people to always inform the police whenever they see any crime committed around them. “
