Nawa o! Man who arranged his kidnap reports his collaborators to police for cheating him

A young man identified as Israel Emmanuel from Adamawa has been arrested by the State police for planning his own abduction and getting his father to pay ransom to the tune of N1 million (One million Naira).

It was learnt that Israel landed in police net after he visited a station to report his collaborators for lying to him that his father paid N500,000 ransom whereas they received N1 million.

The State Police Command confirmed the arrest and stated that Israel confessed to the self-kidnapping.

The man said he orchestrated the act to get his father to cough out money for him and his allies.

Two of the three accomplices, Fartaci Kucol and Zakka Nuh, both from Mubi North LGA in northern Adamawa, who were also picked up, have similarly confessed to the crime.

According to them, Israel was kept in a village in Muvur within the Mubi North Local Government Area for six days and later Mubi metropolis where he spent another two days before the ransom was paid.

The third accomplice, Abdullhamid Mohammed, is still on the run.

Daily Post reports that Israel collected his share of the declared N500,000, returned home and told his family that he was released unharmed.

However, the story changed when he learnt that N1 million was paid for his ‘freedom’ as he could not contain the ‘betrayal’ from his accomplices.

Israel stormed Marraba Mubi Police Division to lodge a complaint and officers swiftly swung into action, investigated the matter, and arrested the perpetrators, including him.
