Jibrin, who described his situation as unfortunate, said he had been in the kidnap business for three years.
“Things are really tough this time around. I have nothing to fall back to hence I joined the kidnapping business in my area for over three years but police operatives apprehended me in the act,” adding,
“I have done everything within my reach to break the shackles of poverty so that I will start to live a normal life but it did not work out for me. It is unfortunate.”
30-year-old Jibrin is one of the two notorious kidnappers terrorizing Lapai Local Government Area of Niger State.
The duo – Jibrin and one Sani Mohammed Kindi, 27 – had attacked Kpada community and kidnapped three women. They were also alleged to have left two others fatally wounded and four others with minor gunshot injuries.
Following a tip-off, a team of the Niger State Police Command’s Operation Puff-Adder and local vigilance group members trailed them to Lapai where they were arrested.
The police operatives were also said to have rushed the wounded to the General Hospital Gulu for treatment.
The Niger State Police Spokesman, Wasiu Abiodun, confirmed the incident on Thursday.
He said the three victims were rescued and investigations were ongoing.
He added that the Jibrin and Mohammed would soon be arraigned in court
