A notorious kidnapper in Imo state has been shot dead by a brave policeman of the state's police command.
The kidnapper known as Samuel was killed on Thursday at about 6pm at his hideout in a hotel in Owerri, the state's capital.
According to police officer who pleaded anonymity, Samuel had been declared wanted by the police in Abuja before he met his death in Owerri.
Samuel was said to have led a team of abductors in Lagos to kidnap a wealthy businessman and had demanded an initial ransom of N20 million.
After receiving the ransom, they had asked for an additional N5 million from the victim’s family but it was not paid on time and so they eliminated him.
