Nineteen other suspects were also paraded for committing various criminal offenses.
These offenses range from kidnapping, conspiracy, armed robbery, murder, cultism, and unlawful possession of firearms.
Addressing journalists, the State Commissioner of Police, Wale Olokode said, Ajibola Ogunibi allegedly connived with some DSS and NSCDC operatives to kidnap a Bureau de change operator and demanded ransom.
He was however given N15,000 by the operatives after the ransom was paid.
