19 year old kidnapper arrested after failed N3.5m ransom payment

A 19-year-old suspected kidnapper, Mohammed Ahmed, of the Gabukka Quarter, Gombe metropolis, has been arrested for allegedly abducting seven-year-old Hassan Abubakar of the Kumbiya-Kumbiya Quarter.

The suspect was arrested after posing as a good Samaritan returning the boy, who had gone missing for three days.

Trouble started for the suspect when the father of the victim called his bluff by refusing to pay the N3m ransom demanded.

While parading the suspect before newsmen in Gombe on Thursday, the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Mary Malum, narrated what transpired.

She added that investigation into the matter was ongoing and the suspect would be charged as soon as it was concluded.(Punch)
