Operatives of the Nigerian Police Force have apprehended three suspected abductors of over 100 students of Bethel Baptist school in Kaduna State, Newspremises reports.

The three suspects have been identified as; “Adamu Bello, Isiaku Lawal and Muazu Abubakar” .

They were paraded by Frank Mba, the Force Public Relations Officers, at the headquarters of defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, on Thursday, September 23, 2021.

The suspects who were dressed in Military uniform confessed to journalists during interviews that they were among the 25 gunmen who stormed the school on July 5, 2021.

One of the suspects, Abubakar, 27, said:

 “Twenty-five of us carried out the operation. We kidnapped 136 students and I got N100,000 share from the money.”

Newspremises recalls that the school was stormed by armed men suspected to be bandits on July 5, 2021, while 121 students were abducted.

Some of the abducted students have, however, regained their freedom.
