How police arrested me – 20 year-old kidnapper


A 20-year-old kidnap suspect, Ahmad Muhammad, has attributed his arrest to his lack of knowledge of the terrain in Wasinmi Village in Osun State.

The suspect was paraded at the Police Headquarters in Osogbo, during which he talked about how his gang’s modus operandi and how his bubble burst.

According to him, “We kidnapped two people along Ibadan/Gbongan Expressway after we made a roadblock. The police were alerted and they faced my gang in a gun battle during which my other gang members ran away with the kidnapped victims. It is painful that my other gang members left me alone in that bush and ran away.

 “It was easy for the police to arrest me because I don’t know the routes in that bush and I could not trace my steps to the place where my other gang members escaped to.”
