Parading the unconscious suspect at the command headquarters in Akure, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Femi Joseph, explained that the suspect and his gang members had invaded a pharmacy in Owo to kidnap the owner.

Joseph went on to say that the three-man gang stormed the store with a gun, but the victim raised the alarm and escaped through the back door.

The police spokesman said the suspect would be charged to court after regaining consciousness.
