The police in Bayelsa State had arrested four suspects in connection with the abduction of Madam Fiorentina, the 90-year-old mother of Senator Emmanuel Paulker.

It was gathered that some of the suspects had confessed to the crime and were helping security agencies to track the whereabouts of the woman.

The state government on Thursday commended the security agencies especially the police for their prompt response to the incident.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hilary Opara, confirmed the arrest and assured that the nonagenarian would soon be released.

The victim was on Wednesday morning kidnapped by unidentified gunmen at her residence in Opolo-Epie, Yenagoa, for a second time in four years.

The state Security Adviser, Lt. Col. Benard Kenebai (rtd), in a statement in Yenagoa also confirmed that the urgent response of the security agencies led to the arrest of the four suspects.

Kenebai on behalf of the government assured security agencies of the needed support in their efforts to free the woman and arrest other suspects.

“One of the prime suspects arrested within minutes of the distress call and three others arrested less than six hours later, have all made very useful statements to the police and efforts are on to ensure the prompt and successful release of the victim,” he said.
