How we shared N8million ransom – suspected kidnapper arrested by Police opens up

A 25-year-old man, Gaiya Usman, arrested for alleged involvement in kidnapping, has confessed to spending his N470,000 share of N8 million ransom on clothes.

Usman is the only one arrested so far out of a five-man gang suspected to have participated in three abductions that yielded a total N8 million.

He was arrested after a man-hunt by operatives of the Adamawa State Police Command, according to the Command Public Relations Officer, SP Suleiman Nguroje

Nguroje said on Monday that the suspect, who hails from Tambo in Girei LGA, along with four others now at large, on separate occasions kidnapped three people and collected the sum of N8 million ransom.


“The suspect said that he was given N470,000 only out of eight million they realized from the families of their victims, explaining that he had used his proceeds and bought clothes,” Nguroje stated.

The Police PRO said the Commissioner of Police, CP Afolabi Babatola, had ordered the commander of the state Crack Squad to take over the investigation, fish out the fleeing suspects and ensure the prosecution of all those involved in the incidents.
