SP. Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, the police public relations officer, provided a statement to newsmen confirming this.

The suspect admitted to the crime and was responsible for other kidnappings that occurred in the villages of Sheme, Yankara, Faskari, and Kucheri in the states of Katsina and Zamfara.
He claimed that roughly ten (10) of their victims had been murdered by the syndicate.
