Operatives of the Kaduna State Police Command have arrested three men for allegedly conspiring to abduct their neighbor’s four-year-old son for ransom in Tudun Jukun, Zaria area of Kaduna State.
In a report sighted on Instablog9ja, the victim’s father who is identified as Mallam Ismail had on May 14, 2021, reported that his son who he gave his name to be Mohammed Ismail abducted by some unknown persons.
He also told the police that the boy was taken to an unknown destination and this was confirmed by the police command’s spokesperson, ASP Jalige.
He disclosed that on May 16 the kidnappers sent a letter containing a GSM number to the father directing him to call and pay the whopping sum of N1.5million if he only wants to see his son again.
The statement by the police indicated that the boy’s father succeeded to persuade the abductors and in turn, they (kidnappers) agreed to accept the sum of N50,000 through the account of a POS agent at Zuba Abuja.
The victim was then released on May 19, 2021, at about 5 pm through a commercial motorcyclist in the Gwargwaje area of Zaria Metropolis.
Confirming the incident, the police spokesperson said;
“In a turn of events, the victim kept calling the name of one Sani Sa’adu who is their neighbor which arose the suspicion that he might know a thing about the incident.
Police immediately intervened and invited the said Sani Sa’adu for questioning. Lo and behold, it was discovered that he is the principal suspect who masterminded the kidnapping incident and went ahead to mention his criminal accomplices as One Abdullahi Usman and Usman Idris all of the same address.
They were both arrested and currently undergoing investigation after which they will all be charged to court as soon as possible.”
