Police arraign alleged kidnapper arrested while shopping in Kwara

Men of the Nigeria Police Force in Kwara State have arraigned a suspected kidnapper, Umaru Mohammed (20), who was said to have been arrested while buying food and slippers at Oro in Irepodun LGA.

The suspect was arraigned on a two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and kidnapping.

According to the First Information Report (FIR), one Ibrahim Umar complained that two of his sons, Umaru Ibrahim (14) and Yusuf Ibrahim (four,) were kidnapped by Mohammed and two others, Babangida and Laagi.

The prosecutor, Gbenga Ayeni, told the court that “They later demanded a ransom of N30m but were paid N400,000 after negotiation. However, the suspect was later arrested at Oro where he went to buy food and slippers.

“N52,000 was found on him after a search as part of the share of the ransom he collected which he confessed to during investigation.”

The magistrate, Isah, remanded the suspect and adjourned the matter to November 30, 2022.

Kwara Stae has had its own share of the incidences of kidnapping, even though at a relatively lower rate compared to other states in Nigeria.
