Special Anti-Robbery Squad SARS, has arrested five suspected kidnappers, who specialize in kidnapping and robbing residents of Abia South zone of their valuables.
The suspects, were arrested at Isiala-Ngwa area of the zone following a tip off after an operation.
They were said to have all confessed to being responsible for the attempted kidnap of a top civil servant in one of the higher institutions in Abia South zone.
The operation was led by the state Commander of SARS, SP Obioguru Johnbull, who since he took over the leadership of SARS in the state has given criminals a red card.
It could be recalled that Abia SARS was lauded recently by Coalition of South East Leaders for changing the story of criminal activities in the state.
The group said before now, criminals made it difficult for people to sleep with their two eyes closed by kidnapping, robbing and committing other violent crimes.

kidnap and robbery syndicate that used a red Sienna bus to rob, kidnap and
terrorize people of Osisioma L.G.A.
This group of criminals was a terror to the
people but it members met their Waterloo when SARS operatives apprehended them
and took them to court, they stated.
