Police operatives have apprehended the suspected kidnappers of a famous Kano Qur’anic reciter, Sheikh Ahmad Sulaiman who was abducted by gunmen along Sheme-Kankara road in Katsina State.
Sheikh Sulaiman, who regularly offered supplications for President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigeria at campaign rallies – spent 13 days in the hands of the hoodlums.
While being interrogated by security operatives, in a video obtained by National Helm, the gang leader, Lawal Ibrahim said some members of the terror group brutally attacked and killed one another after releasing the popular Quranic reciter and other Islamic clerics.
Ibrahim, a middle-aged man and another accomplice who gave his name as Isiyah, said ten of them were involved in the abduction of the renowned Islamic scholar who supported and offered prayers at political rallies for the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari in the build-up to the 2019 general elections.
The notorious kidnapper said they were arrested while trying to flee their abduction’s den to Obajana town in Kogi State, in search of legitimate unskilled jobs after quitting their ‘heinous’ trade of kidnapping.
