Seven-year-old Kidnap Victim Recognises Alleged Kidnapper In Photo

In what can be described as a classic “keep an eye open” situation, a seven-year-old kidnap victim has recognised his alleged kidnapper from a group photograph taken by the latter.

This was disclosed by the police in a court document detailing its lawsuit against one Muhammed Shaibu, the alleged kidnapper.

Shaibu, the police said, was arrested in Katsina State after the victim identified him in the photograph, and he was subsequently traced by the police.

It was learnt that Hamisu Alolo, the abductee’s father, paid N100,000 as the ransom to the alleged kidnapper after his son was kidnapped on August, 29, at about 7pm.

The 22-year-old Shaibu was arrested Filin Polo quarters, also in Katsina State.

The police said: “After the victim regained his freedom, he identified Muhammed Shaibu from a group photograph and insisted that he was his abductor.

The police have slammed one count of kidnapping against Shaibu.

Sani Ado, the police prosecutor, said investigation on the case was in progress.
