Five days after the incident, the Police Intelligence Response Team in Warri, Delta State arrested one of the three leaders of the suspected kidnappers Phillip Joel Kakadu, popularly known as ‘General Kakadu’.
During interrogation he told the Police that five of his boys were among the 16-man gang that operated at the Nigerian-Turkish.
