Israel Emmanuel has been arrested by police in Adamawa State after planning his own kidnapping in order to get N1 million ransom from his father.
According to reports, Israel got into trouble after accusing his collaborators of collecting N1 million from his father while telling him that his father only gave N500,000.
Fartaci Kucol and Zakka Nuh, the other two collaborators, were also apprehended and confessed to the crime. They are both from the Mubi North LGA in northern Adamawa.
They said that Israel was held captive for six days in the remote village of Muvur, which is part of the Mubi North Local Government Area, and then for two more days in the Mubi metropolis before being freed after the ransom was paid. Abdullhamid Mohammed, a third accomplice, is currently wanted on unsolved crimes.
It is reported that after collecting N1 million as ransom, Zakka and Fartaci declared only N500, 000 as the only ransom amount paid by Israel’s father.
After collecting his share of the declared N500,00; Israel returned home and told his family that he was released unharmed.
But when he discovered that N1 million was paid for his ‘freedom’, he could not contain the ‘betrayal’ from his accomplices.He lodged a complaint with the Marraba Mubi Police Division which swung into action, investigated the matter, and got them arrested.
