A court in Sapele today sentenced five kidnappers to 50 years imprisonment for allegedly abducting an elderly trader.
The convicts reportedly ambushed 70-year-old Queen Ogbor as she was driving into her house around 7pm on July 14 in Abraka.
Nemesis caught up with them when on the following day before they could establish contact with their victim’s family for ransom, they were apprehended by security agents who traced them to their hideout through their footsteps.
The convicts identified as 25-year-old Fidelis Ochuko, 21-year-old Kelvin Opuoma, 20-year-old Kelly Jonathan, 20-year-old Kevwe Itedjere and 20-year-old Joseph Enakpodia were today sentenced to 10 years imprisonment each with hard labour.
The victim was rescued unhurt.
