How I graduated from being a farmer to kidnapper, Bandit confesses

A suspected bandit has narrated why and how he started as a farmer, later cattle rustler and then eventually becoming a kidnapper terrorising residents in Kaduna state.

According to the suspect, Salisu Abdullai, he joined a gang of kidnappers because he has no father and mother.

In his narration, Abdullai said;“I was once a farmer. I began with cattle rustling before graduating into kidnapping. I joined a kidnap gang last year.

“There are five members in the gang. I voluntarily joined kidnapping because I have no father or mother.

“Since I joined, my gang has carried out kidnap operations in Kushemakaranta, Rafinkinba, Kuditlri, Kwei, along Nasarawa express road and  Kurumikari, all in Kaduna state. Victim killed.

“The first person we kidnapped was  Chinedu, a businessman.

“He was kidnapped in his house. It was our gang leader that brought information about him.

“Our gang leader lives in the same area as Chinedu. He spent three days in the bush before his family paid N500,000 for his release.

“But on the day he was to be released, he fought with one of us because he wanted to escape and our gang leader ordered us to kill him”.
