“King’ori has been arrested as he tried to escape our dragnet, a few hours after the baby he had kidnapped was rescued. So desperate were his attempts to escape justice, that he had visited a salon in the town to have his hair braided to conceal his identity.
Detectives were however too smart for the suspect’s antics, since they pounced on him as he escaped on a getaway motorbike. His arrest follows stealth & relentless efforts by the investigators to ensure that the perpetrator does not enjoy a single day of freedom again, to torment innocent children and their families.
We thank members of the public who volunteered information, leading to the rescue of baby Liam and the suspect’s arrest.” Said DCI
