“I got N100,000 share from the ransome”



The Police Special Tactical Squad have arrested three of the suspected abductors of students of the Bethel Baptist High School in Kaduna State.

Adamu Bello, Isiaku Lawal and Muazu Abubakar, who were the suspects paraded by the Force spokesman, Frank Mba, in Abuja on Thursday, were part of the 25 gang members who kidnapped 126 students from the school on July 5.

About 100 of the victims have so far been freed by their abductors.

Mba revealed that the suspects played active roles in the kidnap of the students, adding that “we have generated sufficient intelligence, and we are closing in on the others.”

Responding to questions, Abubakar, who was dressed in military camouflage, said, “We kidnapped them because we needed money.

“Twenty-five of us carried out the operation. We kidnapped 126 students and I got N100,000 share from the money (ransom).”

Meanwhile, the police have called on churches to be security conscious, noting that criminal elements now “consider churches as weak and vulnerable.”

Mba said, “We encourage churches, in addition to spiritual protection, to provide security around their churches.”

The advice followed the arrest of a gang, which specialised in breaking into churches to steal musical instruments, and other property.

One of the suspects, Monday Akawo, said he stole pianos and other instruments from 16 churches within the Federal Capital Territory
