Two other suspects Samuel Udoetuk Willis and John Orji are already in police custody and are facing trial.

According to reports, processes are underway to repatriate the third suspect to Ghana.

He was in the country monitoring the court proceedings of the kidnapping case. He arrived in Koforidua on July 29, 2019, and left for Takoradi 3 hours later to monitor court proceedings of the suspects’ in this case.

The third suspect was arrested by the Nigerian police who are collaborating with the Ghana Police Service. He is also a key member who was assigned to monitor proceedings to ensure the suspects do not say more than they are supposed to say.

The Ghana Police were able to access some social media conversations between the third suspect and Udoetuk Wills which seeks to suggest that he played a pivotal role in the kidnapping case than just monitoring court proceedings.
