I Was Paid to Watch Over Kidnap Victims – Buhari

The Katsina State Police Command has paraded some notorious kidnappers terrorising state.

One of the suspects, Abubakar Saidu told Newsmen that he is a gang member of a notorious kidnap kingpin, Tsohon Buhari popularly known as Buharin Daji, operating from the feared Rugu forest, Katsina.

He revealed that Buhari recruited him to rear rustled cattles and pays him in return with a cow annually.

He also confessed that he was paid N20,000 by Buhari to watch over victims that are kidnapped in the Rugu Forest.

He also said after the death of the kingpin who was killed in Zamfara, he was presented to another notorious gangster, identified as Kachalla Ruga, who seems to have taken over the position of Tsohon Buhari to operate from the dreaded forest and was under watch by the police.

“Initially, I reside in Birnin Gwari and work under the notorious bandit, Buharin Daji. He recruited me to rear rustled animals for him and pays me in return with a cow every year,” he told reporters.

“After his demise, I was introduced by a relation, known as Auta to Kachalla Ruga whom I currently work with.

“We kidnap and engage in robbery.

“Though I don’t go to kidnap people with them. My job is to guard. I watch over victims of kidnap.

“They kept four kidnap victims under my custody. I was only giving N20,000 for the kidnapping.

“I was invited from Runka forest by Kachalla. We were on our way to Rugu forest when we were arrested.

“Arms recovered in my possession were put on my body by bad people who don’t like me,” he said.
