The Oyo State command of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), on Friday, recorded recored a major breakthrough as four suspected kidnappers were arrested in Ibarapa area of the state.
The group, under the supervision of the Oyo State coordinator of the Gani Adams-led OPC, Comrade Rotimi Olumo, also made huge progress with the arrest of the second in command to the dreaded Kidnapper, Wakilu Isiaka Muhammadu.
The arrest was made while OPC members were on a search mission for the dreaded Wakilu who had been terrorising the entire area.
Muhammadu, who was arrested around 5pm, had given vital information that might lead to the arrest of the kingpin.
The suspected kidnappers had been a thorn in the flesh of residents of the community.
The four suspects have been handed over to the police and they are presently at the Ago Ranger, Civil Defence headquarters in Igbo Ora.
Meanwhile, the search mission, according to the coordinator, is still ongoing as the OPC was determined to rid the entire Southwest of kidnappers and other criminal elements.

“We are determined to rid the Southwest of criminal elements, including kidnappers and bandits, we are always ready to complement the efforts of the police and the southwest security Network (Amotekun) in the state, and we will not relent in this efforts,” Olumo said.
