The Nigeria Police Force has arrested a driver for allegedly conspiring with criminal gangs to kidnap the passengers he genuinely loaded from a motor park.
The Force’s spokesperson, Mr Frank Mba, disclosed this during a media briefing in Abuja, on Tuesday, October 5.
He said the suspect, who “delivers” innocent citizens to kidnappers, operates on the major high ways in the North East and North West in contact with multiple kidnapping gangs.
According to him, “What he does is that sometimes, he goes to the motor park, present his vehicle and pretends to be an innocent hardworking transporter. He will patiently wait for passengers to board his vehicle and once he has enough of these passengers, he moves from the park.
“PHe establishes communication with members of other kidnapping gangs and bandits along his way and once he gets to a comfortable area, these gang members will intercept his vehicle and kidnap all his passengers.”
Mba said the suspect was among the 34 suspects, consisting of 32 males and two females arrested by the police over various criminal offences.
