Police arrest three suspected kidnappers of Bethel Baptist students
Operatives of 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 paraded by the Force spokesman, Frank Mba, in Abuja on Thursday, were part of the 25 gang members who kidnapped 126 students from their school on July 5.
About 100 of the victims have so far been freed by their abductors.
Mba revealed that the suspects played very active role in the kidnap of the students, adding that “we have generated sufficient intelligence, and we are closing in on others”.
Responding to questions, Abubakar 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),” Abubakar, who was dressed in military camouflage, stated.
