A suspected Kidnapper, Ibrahim Muhammed, on Wednesday has confessed and revealed how him and his gang abducted a serving female Police Inspector, operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and one Alhaji Oro.
Other suspects were identified as Adamu Saliu (25), Abubakar Sodiq (24), Tambaye Muhammed (25), Adamu Sulaiman (36) and Akanni Musa (38).
The suspect confessed that their first operation was initiated by one Muhammed Usman whose younger brother was helping a Civil Defence Corps Operatives to take care of his cows at Eggua area of Ogun State.
It was gathered that Usman brought the idea that they should abduct the NSCDC official and collect ransom from his family.
He said that was how they swung into action and kidnapped him on the fateful day he came to check on the cows at the farm.
“He was abducted and we kept him in the forest for three days; we moved him from one forest to another within three days.
“Before he was released, we collected three million naira from his family members,” he said.
Muhammed said on the day they were taking the NSCDC official to a spot where his family members would meet him, they also kidnapped one Alhaji Oro who was also coming to check his cows in another farm in Eggua area of Yewa.
“After the Alhaji was kidnapped, we held him for four days and then demanded for ransom of N4 million from his family. Despite the fact that the money was paid on time, we still killed the man and left the scene and trekked from Ogun State forest for two weeks, before we ambushed another victim, one Umaru, at Awaiye village in Oyo State.
“Umaru was also coming to check his farm, when we ambushed him. We held him for two days and demanded N1million for his release from his family members. We released him after the money was paid,” he narrated.
Muhammed added that after they had released Umaru, while running away from the forest, they came across one Alhaji Adegoke, near Iseyin in Oyo State and he was also abducted and N25 million ransom was demanded from his family members before they would release him.
He said, “Where we kept the Alhaji, Sodiq was assigned to guard him from escaping, while Sulaiman, Saliu Tambaye, and I went out for another operation, but before we came back the suspect had escaped. Sodiq slept off; that was how he was able to run and we didn’t collect any money from him.
“When we noticed he had escaped, we went into the forest shooting sporadically thinking that he was still within the forest, because, if he wert to be there, we would have killed him.”
Muhammaed said it was poverty that made him to join the gang when I was invited for the kidnap of the NSCDC Operatives.
A 38 year-old herbalist, Musa, whom the police claimed was preparing charms for them before going on operation was also arrested by detectives attached to the Zonal Monitoring Unit of the Command.
Musa who spoke with our correspondent said truly he is an herbalist, but does not prepare charms for them, claiming that Adamu was his friend and he came visiting him at his house, not knowing he has committed a crime.
“Mohammed also used my phone to call Adamu, not knowing that Adamu had been arrested, that was how I was also picked. I was also given two cows stolen from the NSCDC official,” he said.
While parading the suspects at the Zone 2, Command Headquarters, Onikan, the Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG Ahmed Iliyasu, said the suspects were arrested in line with the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu’s directives to mop up arms from criminals elements and gangs across country.
He said, “The suspects consist of three deadly kidnapping syndicates of young men, who have serial records of abduction and killings in South West zone. They have kidnapped a police woman, operatives of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and collected ransom before setting them free.
