The Police however stated that the man belonged to a violent kidnap for ransom syndicate who were tracked down to that location.

In an update made via the Police social media page, they wrote:

It has been established that the armed men in the viral video are not officers of the but operatives of a sister security agency. All the men rounded up in the video are members of a violent kidnap for ransom syndicate who were tracked…

But in another development, a private investigation led by Town Criers NG, has revealed that there is no evidence by the Police to prove that the deceased was a kidnapper.

In a series of posts made on Twitter they claimed the man was a theater practitioner based in Benin, Edo State.
