Couple, 3 others in police net over neighbours son abduction

The Nasarawa Police Command  said it has arrest a 38-year old man, Abubakar Saidu, his wife and three others over alleged abduction of a two-year-old minor for ransom

In the same vein, the command  also nabbed leaders of a cult group who has been on the  wanted list of the command for various offences.

Command  Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ramhan Nansel  stated this while briefing journalists in Lafia, explained that the suspect, Abubakar Saidu conspired with his wife,  three other suspects to kidnap the son of his neighbour.

According to Nansel, the suspects put a call to the parents of the abducted boy demanding  N2.5 million ransom as a condition for  the child's release adding that  the two-year-old boy had been recovered in good condition and  reunited with his parents.

When asked in an interview, Saidu Abubakar confessed conniving with three of his friends to abduct the  minor and hand him over to his wife, who took the boy  to Katsina State for  purported ‘safekeeping’ pending the  payment of  the ransom.

“I regret my role in the kidnapping of the two-year-old boy. The parents are my closed-door neighbours; I needed money, which is why we  abducted  the child. It was in the process of negotiation  for the ransom that the police tracked us down and arrested us”, Saidu said
