18 Sept, 2016. \\ Admin

The troops of 13 Brigade, 82 Division, Nigerian Army, have arrested a suspected notorious militant kingpin, Mr. Victory Benjamin, famously known as Abuja Daddy or G3.

The breakthrough came one week after the troops of Two Brigade Nigerian Army in the ongoing Crocodile Smile operation in the Niger Delta region, raided a notorious kidnappers’ camp at Obiozumini near Obite in Ogbema/Ndoni/Egbema Local Government Area of Rivers State.

According to Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director Army Public Relations, Abuja Daddy was arrested at Saint Joseph Hospital, Ikot Ene junction, Akpabuyo Local Government Area of Cross Rivers State while attempting to collect ransom from a kidnapped victim’s relation

In a related development, the troops also nabbed three militants with locally made pistol and some cartridges while robbing victims around Refugees Camp at Efut Isigi in Bakassi Local Government Area, Cross Rivers State.

Meanwhile, troops have cordoned off the residence of the most wanted militant kingpin, Alias G1, who is still at large.

Already, two arrested militants known as “G2” and “G3” are providing useful information that would assist the military to track other criminals in the region.
