The Police on Tuesday said they have arrested a suspect for allegedly luring and handing over his cousin to a criminal gang for kidnap.

The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Mr Frank Mba disclosed this during a media briefing in Abuja.

He said the suspect lured and handed over his cousin to the kidnappers because of his unwillingness to pay back the loan he got from the cousin.

According to him, the cousin has been a pillar of support to the suspect and had given him a soft loan to purchase four tricycles for his personal use.

He said the suspect was expected to pay back the loan over time.

“At a point, the suspect, clearly not ready to pay back the loan, lured his cousin out of Zaria in the pretext that he was going to collect money from somewhere.

“In the process, the suspect handed over his cousin to a gang of kidnappers in Galadiwa forest in Kaduna State.
