An alleged kidnap kingpin, Bello Abdul, 40, alias Yellow, has confessed to murdering over ten persons and abducting more than 50 victims on the notorious Abuja-Kaduna highway.

He spoke on Thursday after he was arrested by operatives of the Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT).

According to the Nation newspaper, Yellow was arrested at his hideout in Niger State by detectives, who have been on his trail following allegations of operating an armed robbery, cattle rustling and kidnapping syndicate that spanned across Katsina, Zamfara, Kaduna and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja.

It was gathered that his gangs, which had mainly young boys were responsible for over 150 kidnappings and several murders along the Abuja-Kaduna highways and Kajuru.

The suspect who spoke Hausa said: “Yes I am married with five children. I was in Niger State. I was in Kajuru before but I moved to Niger Republic in Iyamadamakwa. I live in Kara.

“Since I relocated to the village, I have been calm. I was into armed robbery and kidnapping. I have kidnapped about 50 times. I have collected N3m like six times. I have collected N10m, N17m, and N19m from different places.

“I operate along Abuja-Kaduna road. I use small boys and those from my village in Maidaro. My boys are in Katsina and Zamfara. They are in nine places.

“I used AK47 rifles and I bought them N50,000 each from one Yaro Alhaji at Kajori. I buy like a container of ammunition. A single ammunition is N1,000.

“I have killed like 10 people. I killed one because the family insulted me on phone when I called them. Others were killed because their families did not pay ransom. I have rustled about 200 cows.

“I did all these things before but I have stopped them now. I have calmed down. If I call my brother Alhaji Abu, he will bring those weapons I used for kidnapping.”

  4. Do guys want this man to go free without doing what He has done,killing,kidnapping and sorts of things.
    My opinion about these is that the man should be sentence to death immediately by court.
    This are the kind of people causing problems in Nigeria.

  5. O God ,our pressman are so dumb, look at this headline and read through the body and tell me they did justice to the headline? They just give headlines as they like without taking time proof read before printing. How do you arrest such a hardened criminal and say he buying ammunition to do his illicit business is shocking? I thought when they said shocking, I hear of a prominent personnel behind his operations.but I saw something different which is normal with criminals.
