Presenting the suspects, Mr Abdullahi Garba, an operative of the service, said that the suspects were arrested on Oct. 5 at J. Zebra hotel in Lokoja.

He said that the abductors’ action was not targeted at Falae as a statesman and prominent Yoruba leader, adding that they were mere criminals.

Garba enjoined Nigerians to shun attempts by mischief makers to give the incident an ethnic coloration to cause disaffection among the populace.
