My share of our ransom was spent on my wedding – Kidnap suspect


35-year-old Ifeanyi Chukwu, who hails from Abia State and was arrested in a hotel in Aba, has confessed to being one of those who kidnapped a former Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Amb. Bagudu Hirse, and many others across the country, including Imo, Rivers, Delta, Abia, Kaduna states and Abuja.

During interrogation, Chukwu said he went into kidnapping in 2015 and that it was his share from the ransom that he used for his wedding ceremony on December 29 (2016).

“I used my share of the ransom from the Kaduna kidnapping for my weding on December 29,” he said. Meanwhile, another member of the group, Jato Peter, 29, was a policeman before he was dismissed after killing someone.

Given that he still had his uniform, Jato said he would always wear his police uniform anytime they were taking their victims to where they would be kept. Other members arrested also included a 33-year-old HND holder, Dominic Nwanpaka, who hails from Abia State.

Their other victims include a chieftain of APC in Kaduna State, Dr. Abdulmalik Durunguwa; a member of the Kaduna State House of Assembly and Durunguwa’s wife who was again abducted by the suspects after the husband had regained his freedom. Crdt: Punchng
