You see, fate happens to people and the day of doom could be lifted mysteriously. This is the story of a group of kidnappers who all slept off at the same time during an operation.

Now, this situation is a wonder to many.


Some persons say it could be some sort of spiritual intervention. Others are of the opinion that that it was sheer coincidence.

Operatives of the Nigerian Police Force announced the arrest of five suspected Fulani kidnappers in Ondo state.

The development comes after their victims successfully identified one of them.

Also, it was gathered that the suspect had abducted a pastor’s wife and two other individuals in the state.


However, due to the influence of hard drugs, the kidnappers slept during transit, leading to the escape of the victims.

The kidnap suspects are Yusuf Tale, 21, Garuba Mumuni, 27, Adamu Mohammed, 22, Kabiru Muhammed, 16, and Shaibu Umar.

In a statement on Sunday, the Ondo State Police Commissioner, Peter Abayomi, said that the suspects were apprehended by officers from the Ofosu Division.
