Alleged kidnap kingpin, Bello Abdul, 40, alias Yellow, has confessed to killing over ten people and kidnapping more than 50 victims on the dreaded Abuja-Kaduna highway.
The suspect who spoke Hausa said: “Yes I am married with five children. I was in Niger State.
I was in Kajuru before but I moved to Niger in Iyamadamakwa. I live in Kara.
“Since I relocated to the village, I have been calm. I was into armed robbery and kidnapping.
I have kidnapped about 50 times. I have collected N3m like six times. I have collected N10m, N17m, and N19m from different places.
“I operate along Abuja-Kaduna road. I use small boys and those from my village in Maidaro.
My boys are in Katsina and Zamfara. They are in nine places.
“I used AK47 rifles and I bought them N50,000 each from one Yaro Alhaji at Kajori. I buy like a container of ammunition. A single ammunition is N1,000.
“I have killed like 10 people. I killed one because the family insulted me on phone when I called them, others were killed because their families did not pay ransom. I have rustled about 200 cows.
“I did all these things before but I have stopped them now. I have calmed down. If I call my brother Alhaji Abu, he will bring those weapons I used for kidnapping.”
