May 8, 2017 – Former Soldier Turned Serial Kidnap Gang Leader Arrested In Asaba Delta State Confesses “I Specialized In Abducting Rich Ladies For Ransom”
I Resigned As A Soldier To Concentrate On Kidnapping – Saliu Tola
Meet Saliu Tola, a 53-year-old former army official who voluntarily resigned from service to raise a 4-man kidnap gang terrorizing residents of Delta state.
The suspect arrested in Asaba last week said he doesn’t kidnap any how. He told investigators he was a specialist in abducting wealthy ladies for huge ransom.
Tola who hails from Adamawa state however said his gang members had not killed any of their victims.
He was nabbed when he arranged to collect N1million ransom from the family of a female victim at popular Gabbs Supermarket on Okpanam Road in Asaba when detectives swooped on him.
Delta State Police Commissioner Ibrahim Zanna said the gang usually trail their victims to eateries, supermarkets and schools from where they pounced on them and ferry them away in their waiting car.
He added that Tola would be arraigned once investigation concludes.
