    Kidnapper who used teenager’s phone to negotiate ransom arrested in Abuja


    Kidnapper using teenager?s phone to negotiate ransom arrested in Abuja

    The FCT police command has arrested a suspected kidnapper identified as Ibrahim Tunbow after using a phone belonging to a 17-year-old boy in the Kwali area of the FCT to negotiate and collect ransom from the relations of a victim.


    The suspected kidnapper was said to have offered the teenager N30,000 after he received the ransom, but the boy rejected the money.

    A resident of the area who spoke to Punch said that Tunbow threatened to kill the boy should he open up to anyone he uses his phone for calls. The source added that the boy was scared by the threat and told his parents what transpired, adding that his parents reported the matter to the police.

    ”What happened was that Tunbow first asked the 17-year-old boy to allow him to use his phone to make calls that his phone was faulty. He made friends with him and subsequently started using the boy’s phone for calls, and sometimes he received calls demanding to speak with Tunbow.

    As soon as he receives the calls, he won’t be seen around for sometimes. Recently, he brought N30,000 and gave to the boy. The boy asked what the money was meant for, Tunbow said it was his share out of the money he made from those calls he normally received using his phone.

    The boy refused to collect the money. He threatened to kill him if he tells anyone that he uses his phone to receive and make calls. The boy was scared and explained everything that happened to his parents. The matter was reported to the police. Tunbow was arrested yesterday afternoon. ”the source said


    Confirming the arrest, the spokesperson of the FCT police command, Josephine Adeh, said


    “Tunbow has been arrested, and he is in our custody. He confessed to using the boy’s phone to make calls during interrogation. He also confessed to being behind some of the abductions in Yangoji, Sahda, and Killankwa. We have intensified efforts to arrest other members of his gang.”


    She, however, warned residents to be mindful of allowing strangers to make calls with their mobile phones.

    “We want to use this medium to caution residents to be mindful of giving their phones to strangers to make calls. Parents should also caution their children against giving their phones to strangers.”she said
