Two suspects have been arrested by police in Niger State for kidnapping a 10- year -old boy. One of the suspects, Yushau Bala, who claimed to be the mastermind of the abduction, confessed that he kidnapped the victim, Afdal Mohammed Hadi, to punish the parents who had accused him of theft in their house.
Yushau, who worked as a security guard in the resident of one Mohammed Hadi, said he had never been accused of stealing in his life and when he was accused and sent out of the house, he decided to stage the kidnap as payback.
“That is why I decided to punish them by kidnapping their son,” he stated.
Yushau said he recruited the other suspect – Sale Bala – for the job, adding that it was Bala that made the phone call to the victim’s parents.
According to the police, the suspects kidnapped the boy and took him to unknown place.
They demanded a N150,000 ransom.
