He said the kidnappers on coming to the residence of his neighbour, Aliyu ran away and he advised them to kidnap the wife and her eight months son telling them that they will get enough money as ransom. ‎‎

Buba however confessed that his neighbour has been good to him but the devil deceived him to perpetrate the act.

“Honestly, I don’t know them and I don’t know where they have taken them to. All they say was that they will give me money and it was sixty thousand naira of the one million, ten thousand naira they collected as ransom.

“I’m pleading for Mercy, it’s the work of the devil, I don’t really know what has come over me,” he said.

On his part, Aliyu said he felt bad that Buba who is perceived as a good neighbour could do such to his family.

He said, “The ugly experience of the fateful day of 11th July 2020 can’t be erased in his mind, the kidnappers actually stormed my house to search for me.”‎

Aliyu noted that what baffled him the most was that during the negotiations to secure the release of his wife and son, the kidnappers usually tell him exactly what they have agreed to do as a family even before they reached out to them.

“From today, I now understand doing good to people is a serious crime,” he added. ‎
