Kidnapper Tramadol suspect dies after 'sleeping’ for nine days

Kidnapper Tramadol suspect dies after 'sleeping’ for nine days

The Police in Ondo State has said a suspected kidnapper who was
arrested in a botched kidnap attempt in Owo is dead following
complications from a high intake of tramadol.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the suspect had been
unconscious since his arrest over the Aug. 5 incident at a chemist in

Mr Femi Joseph, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for Ondo
State Command, made the death public while speaking with the News Agency
of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Akure.

According to Joseph, the suspect died at Owo General Hospital where medical personnel had battled to revive him.

“The suspect died nine days after we arrested him; we thought he would be revived so that he could help us in our investigation.

“Unfortunately, he died yesterday (Monday). This could be connected with the high intake of tramadol which he took.

“We are using this opportunity to further educate the public,
especially parents, to monitor their wards and the kind of company they
keep, ’’ he said.

NAN recalls that suspected kidnappers had stormed Chinery Pharmacy in
Owo township with the intention of kidnapping the pharmacist.

The pharmacist, on sighting the suspects with arms, was said to have escaped through an exit door at the back of the chemist.

The suspects later snatched a Bajaj motorcycle from one Daodu Wale who came to the chemist to buy drugs.

While one of the suspects fell and was arrested, two accomplices escaped on the motorcycle.

One cut to size locally-made gun and 400mg of tramadol were recovered from the suspect.

He was said to have slipped into a coma since his arrest until his death on Monday evening.
