An Islamic teacher of 40 pupils decided to bump up his gross income at Sabon-Fegi, Faskari GA, Katsina so he came up with an idea that made him kidnap a four-year-old.

And the kid is his cousin.

Jamiu Idris plan, according to him, panned out fairly good. He was going to be N500.000 richer keeping Umar Faroque in orphanage in Abuja while negotiation went on. And he might walk off unscathed ultimately.

But greed destroyed him.

Idris revealed how the whole plot thickened when SP. Isah Gambo, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, paraded the 39-year-old suspect before pressmen Wednesday evening at the state.

“I wanted to get some money from my uncle. So, I thought of kidnapping my little cousin. I went to my uncle’s house in Funtua LGA but met only the little boy. I bought him Viju drink and carried him in my car to Dutsen Alhaji in Abuja where I handed him to a relative under the guise that the little boy is an orphan in need of help.

“I returned back to Katsina. Using a phony voice, I called my uncle that is Faruq’s dad on phone to notify him of the development and demanded the sum of N5M if ever he wants to see his son again,” he said.

The boy’s father offered N500,000, but the suspect declined.

So the father decided to seek police help. In the course of investigation, the Islamic cleric was traced, and he confessed to the crime.
