The Commissioner of Police, Ondo State Police Command, CP Salami Amidu Bolaji says, the State will remain too hot for kidnappers and others trading in crimes.

He made this statement in Ore, Ondo State, following the arrest of a suspected kidnapper and robber, who on interrogation said, him and his gang sometimes in this month robbed a Hummer bus with registration number Gombe: NFD 591 XA, kidnapped its driver and conductor in Gombe State.

The suspect further said, to run away from Gombe State after the robbery and kidnapping, repainted the Hummer bus, fixed a forged number plate Kogi: XA 451 AN and headed towards the South Western part of the country with a view that nobody could trace him and the loots.

CP Salami said with a recent kidnap incident in Akoko area of the State, he felt challenged, and ordered his men to comb every part of Ondo State, including every forest in and around the State to ensure that the perpetrators of these kidnapped attacks in Akoko were apprehended and brought to justice.

He further said, with such instruction, it was like igniting the fire for effective raiding across the State, the result of which was the rescue of a lady that was kidnapped earlier in the day around same Akoko axis and the arrest of the Gombe kidnapping suspect and the recovery of the vehicle.

CP Salami however said this would not have been so easy without credible intelligence gathering and the supports of the good people of Ondo State.

Accessing the assistance of other sister- agencies and the conduct of the good people of the State towards Ondo Police Command, CP Salami said, “It is so obvious that the people of Ondo State and other security agencies in Ondo State are Police friendly. With this kind of support in information sharing, and their practical supports, I could do my best, they have done most useful. I pray we continue this way, during and after the governorship election coming soon”
