Buba made the confession to newsmen in Yola while he was being paraded by Adamawa State Police .According to him, a herdsman named Wakili,approached him to have a deal of kidnapping his neighbour’s wife saying that his brother who is a top government official in the state will cough out millions of naira as ransom.
While giving details of how he connived with the group of unknown four people, he said he was the one organising and telling them the situation of things during negotiations.
According to reports, He confessed that the family of Aliyu has been good to him but the devil deceived him to perpetrate the act.
“Honestly, I don’t know them and I don’t know where they have taken them to. All they say was that they will give me money and it was sixty thousand naira of the one million, ten thousand naira they collected as ransom. I’m pleading for Mercy, it’s the work of the devil, I don’t really know what has come over me,” he said.
Meanwhile , Aliyu said it’s really bad to see Buba who is perceived as a good neighbour do such thing to his family.
