Taraba State Police Command has arrested a 22-year-old student of Modibbo Adama University of Technology (MAUTECH), Abdulbasid Umar, for kidnapping his ten-year-old sister, Amina Umar and demanding a N10 million ransom from their father.

The state police command spokesperson, David Misai, said Abdulbasit Umar, alongside two other accomplices, Sadiq Sani and Abdullahi Habib, were said to have demanded the sum of N10 million as ransom to free Amina. Misai said:

“The mastermind of the crime, Abdubasit Umar, who happens to be a biological brother of the victim (Amina Umar), had criminally conspired with other suspects and lured the innocent girl into a Blue Honda Hennessy car marked MKF 67JK Kaduna. They drove her to Dove Hotel in Mayo Dassa, where she was held captive.

“The suspects contacted the family and demanded a ransom of 10,000,000 naira. The kidnappers later accepted to collect the sum of N4 million. In the process of collecting the ransom at Wuro-Sambe, an outskirt of Jalingo, they were tracked down and arrested. The victim was rescued.”

When interrogated, the major suspect said “My intention of kidnapping my younger sister was to get N10 million. My aim is to get the money and travel abroad.”

One of his accomplices, Sadiq Sani who claimed to be a childhood friend of the major suspect, said he connived with his friend to help him get money from the father.
