End of the Road! UNILORIN graduate goes into kidnapping to raise money for Dubai trip

A young man who claimed to have graduated from the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), Idowu Mafe (29), has been arrested by the Police in Niger state for allegedly kidnapping students of the Federal University of Technology (FUT), Minna.

Mafe who hails from Ogun State was arrested with his friend, Edo State born Abraham Jatto, (30), for the crime.

Police spokesman Bala Elkana said the suspects were responsible for the kidnap of three FUT Minna students. He added that the police is on the trail of two others who are on the run.

Mafe, who claimed to be a graduate of the University of Ilorin, regretted his action, saying it was the quest to make money that led him into it.

He said: “When the issue of getting a Dubai job came up, my parents could not afford the N750,000 demanded from us, and Abraham raised the issue of kidnapping which led us to this predicament.

I have dragged my family’s name in mud. I am well-brought up but I can’t factor what led me to this act. I pray my parents will forgive me.” Jatto confessed that they rented a two-bedroom apartments behind the trade fair complex to keep their victims.
