The Kano State Police Command has arrested 19-year-old Nafiu Sulaiman who faked his kidnap and lost N365,000 ransom.

Sulaiman was arrested after collecting the ransom from his uncle, the owner of a cement shop where he worked at Garindau village in Warawa Local Government Area of the state.

The suspect confessed to police during a parade that he planned his own kidnap and intended to buy clothes and other things with the ransom.

Sulaiman said, “I planned everything. I used another line to call my boss, who is also my uncle. I demanded a ransom and asked them to drop it somewhere. I stayed there all these long, and when I needed food, I came out to buy and go back.

“But I didn’t use even one per cent of the money. I spent only N20,000 and buried the money somewhere. When I got there I found the money was stolen.”

Kano State Commissioner of Police, Muhammad Gumel, said the suspect was arrested in the course of an investigation.
