3 Things The Arrested Bethel Student's Kidnappers Told Journalists While Being Paraded By The Police

Banditry is not a job that anybody will be proud of in Nigeria. It is terrorism and a way of depriving people of their constitutional rights. If you are a medical doctor or an engineer, you will surely be able to tell people the job you are doing and be proud of it without shame or fear, unlike banditry, Kidnapping, and terrorism.

According to a video of confession by the Nigeria Police Force, watch the video here. The suspects were arrested dressed in military camouflage and paraded by the Force Public Relations Officers, Frank Mba, at the headquarters of defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), in Abuja.

The recent onslaught on bandits in the North West has also proven that banditry won't last in Nigeria. Therefore, bandits should rather surrender to the authority and embrace peace so that they can be rehabilitated and trained on a reconciliation program that will provide them with a skill that will earn them a source of livelihood. Below are 3 Things revealed by the arrested kidnappers.

They Were Paid 100k Each

According to them, the abduction of the students was done in a desperate bid to get money, and were paid N100,000 each, an amount that can't be equated with the pains they have inflicted on their victims. For just N100k, they kidnapped people and made their parents and guardians go through a lot of pain.

They told newsmen that 25 of them abducted the students.

When the three kingpins involved in the kidnapping of one hundred and thirty-six Bethel Baptist School students in Kaduna were paraded by the police in Abuja, they said only 25 of them carried out the nefarious attack.

Only 3 has been apprehended

The names of the suspects are Adamu Bello, Isiaku Lawal, and Muazu Abubakar. It was stated clearly that the remaining kidnappers are still at large and through the help of the 3 arrested kingpins, the rest of them will be arrested.
