The police identified the three Suspects as Bode Omoboye, Eric Ogungbamila and Tayo Loto who served as their agents.

An eyewitness who confirmed the incident said Tayo confessed after an interrogation that he was sent to Kogi State by Omoboye and Ogungbamila to kidnap people and bring them to Igbokoda for rituals.
The eyewitness who is a resident of the area narrated on facebook:
“I want to appeal to Nigerians to take this case seriously, especially the Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, and his Kogi State counterpart, Yahaya Bello because this case involves two states,”
“A guy named Loto Tayo has confessed after interrogation at NURTW motor park in Igbokoda that he was sent to Kogi State by two men from Igbokoda to go and kidnap people for rituals as he has been doing for them for a very long time.
“Though Tayo was successful this time around, having spent two weeks in Lokoja looking for whom to kidnap for the rituals, he came to Igbokoda on the 12th of December 2020 with two beautiful ladies and a guy.
“On their way coming, Tayo lodged at Brytelite Hotel along Igbokoda road in Okitipupa where the duo of Eric and Bode went to meet him to confirm the job.
“Thereafter, Eric and Bode left the hotel (Brytelite) while Tayo also left with the three persons to Igbokoda. On their way coming to Igbokoda, Tayo entered a commercial car with the three persons.
“Fortunately for the kidnapped victims, another lady entered the car with them. On their way coming to Igbokoda, the three kidnapped persons regained their consciousness and secretly narrated their problem to the lady who entered the car with them.”
