According to the New Telegraph , a 19-year-old boy Salisu Salmanu who studies accountancy in Federal Polytechnic, Bauchi, , has been arrested alongside seven of his friends . They were arrested for the kidnap of Salisu's 3-year-old step brother .The abduction took place at Kofar Idi area of the state.

Salmanu  who confessed to the police said that he wanted to use the N10 million ransom his gang demanded from his father to buy a car. He blamed  greed and selfishness for his action, as his father, Salmanu Mohammed, the elder brother to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Senator Bala Mohammed, had been taking good care of him and providing for his needs, though there were times he could not meet some of the needs. Read his own side of the story below :
"Initially, when we planned the kidnap, I was advised that if we succeeded in getting N10 million, we would buy a car and also have money left to spend. I know that if I demanded such money from my father, he would refuse because he would tell me he has three wives and would have to cater for other children.
"So, I planned with my friends to kidnap my step-brother, who is three years old, with the intention that my friends would call him and demand for ransom, after which I would collect my own share if paid.Honestly, my father meets my needs. He pays my school fees and every other thing I need. It is just greed and selfishness which the devil put in our hearts that led me into this ,"
he said
