A vicious kidnap gang which abducted the 93-year-old father of a former governor of Plateau State, Chief Joshua Dariye on June 17, 2020, and brutally shot him dead eight days after collecting a ransom of N10 million from his family, has told why they murdered the old man.

Fourteen months after committing the crime, the perpetrators have been caught in a web woven around them by the police, and are telling operatives of the DCP Olatunji Disu-led Intelligence Response Team, IRT, their respective roles in the gruesome act.

Sadly, among the eight suspects arrested by the police in connection with the crime, six of them are indigenes of Horop community in Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau State, where the victim, late Pa Dariye Dafwan, hailed from.

Ngusen says he ordered Mangut Shumwar to kill Pa Dariye, for fear of being recognized by the nonagenarian since majority of them are from the same village with him.
