This popular saying is indeed true, "99 days for the thief one day for the owner". The words I said above just came to reality as a kiddnaper was recognized by one of his abducted victims.
It was really a mild drama at a motor park located in Dange-shuni local government of sokoto state, as a commercial driver reportedly identified one of the kidnappers amongst his passengers who abducted him two months ago.
According to Daily Trust, the victim (the car owner), was kidnapped along Kankara in Katsina State while returning from Kano about two months ago.
It was reported that the victim spent three weeks in captivity and was released after paying an undisclosed amount of money as ransom.
However, the newspaper quoted a member of the National Union of Road Transport Worker (NURTW), who's name is withheld, as saying the suspect was, however, recognised by the victim when he boarded his vehicle on his way to Kano state.
His statement reads; “The driver was quick to identify him because the incident happened not too long ago,” the NURTW official was quoted to have said.
“After identifying him, he alerted our leaders who in turned informed the nearest police outpost.”
The leaders of the NURTW reportedly urged the driver to move towards Kwannawa motor park in Dange-Shuni local government area of the state, where the car was allegedly blocked by the police.
While being interrogated, the suspect was said to have admitted belonging to a gang of kidnappers who fondly called him 'Hadari' and this was later corroborated by the driver when invited for questioning.
Report has it that the suspect was later moved to the Sokoto State Police Command headquarters for more investigation.
The spokesman for the Command, Muhammad Sadiq, while confirming the incident, said the investigation was still on.
The rate of kidnap cases is drastically increasing in the country, and I pray God should continue to expose the abductors and other bad people terrorizing the country.
