A man who kidnapped his ex-boss for accusing him of stealing and also demanding N1m ransom, has been arrested by the police.
The suspect, Sani Mohammed, who is a member of a kidnap and robbery ring which operates on Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway and Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, was arrested alongside three other members of his gang- Babangida Garba, Ibrahim Dogo and Ibrahim Haruna.
Mohammed who masterminded the kidnap of his ex-boss for accusing him of stealing, had worked for Alhaji Ulere till he made the allegation against him in 2016. Punch reported that one of the suspects had pretended to be a customer and called Ulere on the telephone, asking the businessman to meet him along the road to his shop in Luge.
However while on his way to the agreed location, other gang members reportedly ambushed him and took him to their camp in the City Gate area. However after they demanded that the family of the kidnap victim should pay N1m ransom within 48 hours or lose him, the incident was reported to the Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team led by DCP Abba Kyari who asked the family to play along with the gang.
According to a police source, Dogo, came out of the camp to collect the ransom from Ulere’s relative unknown to him that detectives were monitoring his movement.
