Niger Delta most wanted criminal and kidnap kingpin, Kelvin Ibruvwe, was on Wednesday morning captured by operatives of the State Security Services (SSS) in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The notorious kidnap suspect was nabbed seven days after he issued a 60-day ultimatum to the Federal Government to develop Urhobo areas of Delta State in order to avert unprecedented attack on oil facility.
A special squad deployed from SSS Headquarters, Abuja and local security operatives in Delta State traced him to a hotel where he was arrested at about 3am.
Meanwhile, an intense gunfight is raging between his supporters and security operatives in Kokori, his hometown at the time of this report.
It was gathered that youths armed with sophisticated weapons opened fire on troops sent to secure the town.
