“How We Abducted And Killed Father Of Former Plateau State Governor Joshua Dariye” – Kidnappers.
An eight-member kidnapping syndicate have been arrested and paraded after they abducted and killed the 93-year-old father of former Plateau state governor, Joshua Dariye.
The 93-year-old identified as Pa Dariye Dafwan was abducted from his home in Horop community, Bokkos LGA of Plateau State on June 17. He was shot dead eight days after the suspected kidnappers collected the N10 million ransom from the family.
The identities of the kidnappers are: Ya’u Saidu aka Ya’u Kaban m’ 40yrs, from Kaban Village, Bokkos LGA, Plateau State, Titus Ezekiel 34yrs from Horop, Bokkos LGA, Dauda Isah ‘m’ 30yrs, from Horop, Sunday Ibrahim m’ 35yrs, Mushere tribe from Horop, Mangut Shumwar ‘m’ 30yrs, from Horop, Henry Amos ‘m’ 35yrs native of Horop, and Jethro Ngusen ‘m’ 57yrs, native of Horop.
The breakthrough that led to the arrest of the suspects began with the arrest of one Abubakar Mohammed a.k.a Buba ‘m’ 23yrs, native of Gada Biyu in Daffo district, Bokkos LGA, Plateau State who is one of the principal suspects in the kidnap operation.
Jethro Ngusen who was the mastermind and convener of the gang instructed one of the gang members, Mangut Shumwar to kill Pa Dariye, because he feared that Pa Dariye might recognize the suspects since the majority of them are from the same village as the deceased.
Jethro was also identified as the one who took custody of the ransom and later shared the proceeds of the crime amongst the gang members.

A widow that was reportedly abducted alongside Olajide Sowore, the late brother of newspaper publisher and former presidential aspirant, Omoyele Sowore, has revealed how she escaped to save her life.
Recall that Sowore’s brother was killed by the same suspected Fulani herdsmen who abducted Emmanuella Anyanwu, a widow who was on her way to Imo to bury her husband.
Emmanuella said she was abducted by suspected kidnappers in Edo state who demanded a ransom of N10 million from her for her release.
Anyanwu said they walked with the men for about 2 hours after they were captured and that they threatened her that if her family couldn’t pay the ransom, they would kill her.
She said she offered her abductors N500, 000 but they felt slighted, causing them to call her a fool.
She eventually saw a way of escape when they were distracted by the arrival of a new kidnap victim.
In her words: ”On Friday, we were coming from Lagos to the eastern part of the country and our vehicle broke down around Okada on the outskirts of Benin.
We passed the night in the vehicle. Around 6.30 am to 7 am Saturday, some men came out from the bush, shooting at us; we surrendered. We were two ladies and three men.
They took our belongings, including our phones, and marched us into the bush. It took almost two hours to get to their camp. They blindfolded us and questioned us one after the other.
They asked me where I was coming from and where I was going. I told them that I was coming from Lagos and going to Imo State for my husband’s burial. They asked how many kids I had and I told them two. I also told them I sold groundnut in Lagos. They asked if I was the one providing the money to bury my husband and I told them his brother would do that.
