”I joined kidnapping gang so I can make money to celebrate Sallah.”
Mohammed Kwari, 23, was recently arrested by the Niger state police command, for being involved in a kidnapping gang. He claimed that he only joined the gang so he can make money to buy things to celebrate the Eid-al-fitr holiday this Friday June 15th and Monday June 18th.
He was arrested alongside with another gang mate, Emmanuel Idi, 21. They were arrested by the Police operatives in the Kagara division while trying to extort N2.5 million from Sabon Mariga residents whom they threatened to kidnap if they failed to pay the money.
“I was looking for money to buy things for the sallah. I never knew that police operatives will arrest me. My parents were so angry that they refused to visit me in the cell. Honestly, I have disappointed them and I pray that they would forgive me.”
According to the Police, he will be charged to court soon.
