A 22-year- old student of the Adamawa State University Jalingo, Abdulbasid Umar, has been arrested for kidnapping his ten-year old sister, Amina Umar.
The suspect was nabbed with his two accomplices, Sadiq Dalhatu Sani 21, and Abdullahi Habib 27, whom he had hired to perpetrate the act.
Umar demanded N10 million ransom from his father to release his sister alive.
They later reduced the ransom to N4 million before they were apprehended, police said.
Fielding questions from reporters, the key suspect in the kidnap of the minor revealed that he abducted his natural sister “to make his father cough out N10 million so that he could travel abroad.”
The suspect, a 100-level student of Computer Science, said: “My intention of kidnapping my younger sister was to get N10 million. My aim is to get the money and travel abroad.”
