The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has arrested a police major and four others for allegedly kidnapping an overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in Cagayan de Oro City on October 23.

Senior Inspector Ereneo Ramirez was arrested after he and four of his men were positively identified for the abduction of OFW Enrique Fernandez III, Gulf Today quoted Lawyer Hans Barbaso, the deputy NBI regional chief, as saying.

Ramirez heads the Crime Against Person and Property Division of the Cagayan de Oro Police Department, the report said.

Barbaso reportedly said that Ereneo and four of his men were positively identified by a witness and several of his fellow police officers based on the footage taken by a CCTV (closed circuit TV) at a business establishment where Fernandez was kidnapped while aboard his motorcycle.

“The footage first showed Ramirez and his men mauling Fernandez and later inside a van where he was transported elsewhere,” Barbaso reportedly said, adding the victim remains missing until today along with his motorcycle.

He added Ramirez and his men did not resist when NBI agents arrested them while inside the regional police headquarters in Cagayan de Oro on Tuesday.

Their arrest caught the attention of the local media who immediately rushed to the scene as they reported seeing the NBI agents herding Ramirez and his men without handcuffs to a waiting vehicle, the Gulf Today report said.
