I joined kidnapping gang to make money for Sallah – Suspect


A member of a kidnapping gang, Mohammed Kwari, 23, who was recently arrested by the Niger State Police Command, has said he joined the gang so he can make money to buy things for  tomorrow’s Eid-el-Fitr celebration.

Mohammed and another member of his kidnapping gang, Emmanuel Idi, 21, were arrested by police operatives attached to Kagara division while trying to extort N2.5 million from Sabon Mariga residents whom they threatened to kidnap if they failed to pay the money.

When interrogated, Mohammed said ”“I was looking for money to buy things for the Sallah. I never knew that police operatives will arrest me. My parents were so angry that they refused to visit me in the cell. Honestly, I have disappointed them and I pray that they would forgive me”.

The police say the suspects would be charged to court soon.
