Police say no arrest yet over kidnap of minister’s brother in Benin

The Police in Edo said they had yet to make arrest over Sunday’s kidnapping of Managing Director of the Ogba Zoological Gardens, Benin, Andy Ehanire.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Moses Nkombe, told newsmen in Benin on Monday that policemen were working to arrest the kidnappers.

“Our men are working on that, though we have not made any arrest,” Nkombe said.

Ehanire, who is the younger brother to the Minister of State for Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, was kidnapped and in the process, three policemen who were posted to provide security for fun seekers at the Zoo and Nature Park were killed by gunmen suspected to be kidnappers.

Ehanire was in the process abducted by the gunmen.

It was learnt that the killing disrupted activities at the zoo as many fun seekers scampered for safety.

The remains of the police officers have since been deposited at the morgue of the Benin Central Hospital.(NAN)
