Chairman Of Kidnappers Operating In Niger State Arrested… Maitarari Isa Saidu Says He Made N470Million In 2 Operations

Police have nabbed a self-acclaimed leader of kidnappers operating in Niger state.

The suspect, 63-year-old Maitarari Isa Saidu, a father of 29 children, married to 3 wives said he switched into car theft business because kidnapping had become too risky.

Saidu said his last 2 operations fetched him 470 million naira.

35 stolen vehicles and 5 AK47 rifles were recovered from the kidnap kingpin who operated in Abuja, Yobe, Kaduna, Niger and Zamfara highways.

He was caught when his boys received and paid N400,000 for a car which he quickly took to sell for N800,000 in Kano.

    We cannot bring back peace into our community until when we start marching these kidnappers, armed robbers, ritualists and our polithieveans behind the drum and let them face firing squad.

    Very soon this idiot will be released back into the society and will continue from where he left off. This guy was bragging that he switched from one crime to another and our government fold its arm and think that situation will to normal without enforcing the law guiding capital offense.
