Actress Yetunde Bakare has said that suspected kidnap kingpin, John Ewa alias John Lyon, who was recently arrested in Abuja did not have mercy on his victims.
Yetunde Bakare said this while reacting to a viral video of the alleged kidnapper begging for forgiveness after his arrest.
“Begging for Mercy when you don’t have mercy on your victims. God is indeed patient,” the actress wrote on Instagram on Monday.
The police on Monday paraded Lyon alongside three members of his suspected kidnap gang at the Police Officers Mess, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital.
Lyon has been on the wanted list of the police for various alleged abductions in the state.
In the viral video, he pleaded for forgiveness after he was arrested, claiming that his wife was just delivered of a baby boy.
Lyon also claimed he only participated in two kidnapping operations before his arrest.“Forgive me, make una forgive me, my wife just born sef, a boy,” he said.
According to his bio on Facebook, the Bayelsa State indigene is a former member of staff of Sterling Bank.
In 2019, the suspect put his weight behind the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Bayelsa, David Lyon.
But in February 2020, the Supreme Court sacked Lyon barely 24 hours to his inauguration.
