A 22 year old student of the Modibbo Adama University of Technology (MAUTECH), Yola, Adamawa State, identified as Abdulbasit Umar, has been arrested for kidnapping his own sister.
The Taraba state police command arrested Abdulbasit, alongside two other accomplices, Sadiq Sani and Abdullahi Habib, who had demanded N10m ransom for the 10 year old Amina Umar.
Spokesman of the state police command, DSP David Misal, explained that officers of the State Investigative Bureau arrested the trio enroute to collect a ransom of N4 million which they later settled for.
The major suspect, Abdulbasit, who spoke to newsmen, said he had not done such before but needed the money to study abroad.
According to him,
“my aim was that after collecting the money, I would proceed with my education abroad.”
