The Nigeria Police Force has apprehended a driver for allegedly conspiring with bandits and criminal elements to abduct passengers after loading from a motor park.
Parading the suspect in Abuja, Nigeria Police Force, public relations officer, Frank Mba, said the driver, who “delivers” innocent citizens to kidnappers, operates on the major highways in the North East and North West and works hand in hand with multiple kidnapping gangs.
“What he does is that sometimes, he goes to the motor park, present his vehicle and pretends to be an innocent hardworking transporter.
He will patiently wait for passengers to board his vehicle and once he has enough of these passengers, he moves from the park.
He establishes communication with members of other kidnapping gangs and bandits along his way and once he gets to a comfortable area, these gang members will intercept his vehicle and kidnap all his passengers,” he said.
The suspect was among the 34 suspects, consisting of 32 males and two females arrested by the police over various criminal offences.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
