Specifically, he said that one of the suspects identified as Ramoni, whose hotel and residence were razed by irate youths, was a herdsman.
“Ramoni is a Fulani and not an indigene of Omu-Aran,” he stated.
The alleged kidnapers were said to have been arrested by youths of Odo-Owa in Oke-Ero Local Government Area of Kwara on April 29.
The ODA spokesman said that Omu-Aran people were renown for hard word and dignity across the nation and in the diasporal.
He also cited Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, and American Congres
sman Oye Owolewa, among its other eminent citizens.
The statement therefore urged the public to disregard all forms of misinformation on the real identities of the arrested kinappers in the town, assuring that the community will always support law enforcement agents in their efforts to rid the area and the state of criminals.
