A suspected kidnapper slept off during an operation to kidnap a pharmacist in Ondo state after taking Tramadol before commencing the crime.
According to the Punch, the Ondo state Police command confirmed the incident stating that it happened in Owo town, Ondo State, on Sunday.
According to the police, the suspect was still sleeping as at Monday due to the effect of the drug.
The suspect was even asleep while being paraded to Press men as the effects of the Tramadol were still evident.
Mr Femi Joseph, the state Police Public Relations Officer explained that the suspected kidnapper along with his gang had invaded the pharmacist’s home in Owo with the aim to kidnap the man.
The would-be victim was able to escape after raising alarm and made a dash for it through the back door.
Mr. Joseph said: “After failing to abduct their target, the hoodlums fled, but one of them stumbled because he was not active again due to the effect of the tramadol he had taken.
“The suspect has been sleeping for more than 24 hours after his arrest while a 400mg tablet of tramadol was found in his pocket.”
The police are now waiting on the suspect to regain consciousness before prosecuting him for his crimes.
