The force also noted that efforts has been intensified to apprehend the members of the gang that were still at large.

Items recovered from the suspected kidnappers include a locally made revolver, three live ak47 ammunition, a battle axe, phones and masks with which they allegedly blindfold their victim.

Mr Okeregbe was released after a week after being abducted.
