Wanted kidnapper,  Peregbakumo Oyawerikumo, aka, Kareowei, who has been alleged to be terrorising some local government areas in Bayelsa and Delta states, has been captured this morning by soldiers attached to “Operation Delta Safe”.

The dreaded militant who hails from Buturu Local Government Area of Delta state, surrendered himself to men of the military operation at Ogbobagbene, Burutu Local Government Area of Delta state, on Thursday morning.

The notorious militant leader of the Toru-Ndoro community, was alleged to have beheaded a naval officer, who was at the local government for a peace mission last December.
