Two people suspected of involvement in the February 2 kidnapping of Alhaji Jibrin Idris in Kogi have been arrested by the police.

The arrest was confirmed in Lagos on Monday by ACP Abba Kyari of the Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT).

The kidnapped Islamic scholar in Enabo, Ankpa Local Government Area of Kogi was not released until a ransom was paid for his freedom.

Kyari said that his team, in response to a directive from the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, have been on the hunt for the kidnappers since the February abduction.

"After about three months of unrelenting follow-up, the kidnappers escaped to Enugu State after collecting the ransom in February and realised that IRT was trailing them.
"They were arrested on May 29 in Ayingba, Kogi, and 9th Mile, Enugu State.’’
The two suspects, according to Kyari, have already confessed to the crime.
"They mentioned two other gang members now at large. We are on their trail.
"We recovered the phone used for the ransom negotiation by the kidnappers."
