How A 25-Year-Old Man Planned With Bandits To Kidnap His Father Over N200,000 In Katsina State

Just as the federal government is trying to fight the issues of insecurity in the country, things like terrorism, kidnapping, banditry and so on has not been fully tackled. Most especially kidnapping, has been on the rise everyday and these attacks are carried out by bandits who have long targeted central and northwestern states, raiding villages, stealing cattle and kidnapping for ransom.

Recently, kidnapping for ransom has turned into a big business for bandits and some Nigerians have found pleasure in planning with bandits so they can also benefit financially from kidnapping.

Just some hours ago, it was disclosed that a 25-year-old man from Rinjin Gora village, Matazu Local Government Area of Katsina State confessed to newsmen that he met with bandits to kidnap his father so that he could be rewarded the sum of N200,000.

According to DAILY POST, the young man's name is Hamza Isah and his 60-year-old father's name is Alhaji Isah Maigora.

In this article, I will be sharing with you how the 25-year-old man was able to successfully plan the attack and the chance of the father been released very soon.

It all happened after Hamza Isah went to meet a man called Auwal Magaji to help him with fertiliser. However, instead of Auwal to give Hamza the fertilizer, he called him to one side and narrated to him a business deal which could make him a millionaire in less than a month. After so many discussions, Auwal told Hamza to help them aiding in the kidnap of his father and he would be instantly credited with the sum of N200,000.

The hugeness of the money got Hamza and he agreed to help the bandits succeed with their planned abduction. On leaving, Hamza was given N20,000 as a start for the operation and promised to be paid the rest of the money if they were successful.

Hamza was given six different type of charms to bury in their compound so that the kidnap of his father would be successful. On the night in which the bandits came to attack, Hamza pretended as if he didn't know what was going on and the kidnap of his 60-year-old father by the bandits was successful.

Unfortunately for Hamza, his conscience was not clear about the abduction of his father, so he decided to return the N20,000 which was earlier given to him by the bandits, but they refused to collect it, rather, they threatened to kill him if he tells anyone about the abduction.

The elder brother to the suspect, Buhari Isah, became suspicious of his brother’s utterances after their father was kidnapped. He said his younger brother, Hamza, was bragging that he is going to have a lot of money very soon.

This made him to call on the police to look into the matter and in the course of interrogation, the suspect confessed to have masterminded the father’s abduction after being lured with an initial N20,000 gift and charms by an elderly man from the community and the promise of a handsome reward when the operation is successful.

However for the father, he is still held in captivity of the rest of the gang members, and as at the time of filing this report, the whereabout of the father is unknown. The chances of getting the father back alive is very small because the bandits might have seen on the news that the son of the abducted man has confessed and revealed their plans, of which might want to prompt them to kill the man. However, if the security agencies in the area can torture the accomplices who were arrested alonsgide Hamza Isah, enough information about the whereabout of the father might be known on time and they can as well rescue the 60-year-old father before any damages are done.

What do you have to say concerning the 25-year-old man who mastermind the kidnap of his father? Feel free to drop your comments below.
