Notorious kidnapper pays N1.5m ransom to regain freedom after being abducted by another kidnapper
A kidnapper identified as Mohammed Ahmadu paid N1.5 million to regain his freedom from another kidnapper, Abubakar Umaru a.k.a Buba Bargu.

Force Public Relations Officer, CP Frank Mba, disclosed this while parading both kidnappers alongside other criminals in Abuja on Monday. He said Buba was notorious for kidnapping citizens on highways around Abuja.

According to Mba, Buba was third in command of a kidnap syndicated headed by one Buji, who was neutralized by the police alongside the second in command. He took leadership of the gang and was notorious for always killing kidnap victims.

Ahmadu was abducted when he came to their hideout in the forest to sell live ammunition to the group.
