One of the suspects, who is also a leader of transnational kidnap gang operating on the borders of Sokoto and Niger Republic, Abdullahi Dalhatu, admitted to have carried out several kidnap operations in Niger Republic and Nigeria.
He said his gang were arrested when they kidnapped an aide of a Kano State lawmaker, late Abah Abe and killed him after his people failed to pay N50 million ransom.

The police also paraded Sylvester Agbole, who collaborated with another suspect, Samuel Emmanuel, to kill one Engr. Godwin Christopher.
Speaking to journalists, the suspect, Agbole said Engr. Christopher borrowed him N500,000 for his wedding and this led to the murder of lender.
