The trio of Adebowale Johnson, Oluwadara Segun, and Amos Loko, all Nigerians, and a Beninnois, Vidiyong Taiye, have revealed how they hatched a plan and kidnapped a Chinese expatriate, Kumming Hyang.
According to them, they had over the course of a year planned how to abduct a victim for ransom but their plans were aborted due to some unforeseen circumstances.
They however re-strategised recently and picked a new victim, this time the Chinese expatriate, following information from Loko, who also worked with the victim.
According to Loko, he had zeroed in on the Chinese in a bid to ensure a handsome ransom, but their plans were foiled when they were arrested before they could demand for ransom.
The 26-year-old said, “After our plans failed last year, I continued my job as a driver. It was recently I called back my gang and told them that we would pick up my boss.
“The plan was that as soon as I resume work by 5am, they will use advantage of the open gate to come in and pick up my boss. Our plans worked and we took him to a forest behind our house at Igando, Ibeju, Lekki.
“I was arrested after one Mr. Ken, who is a contractor with my company, called in the police and they arrested me as a suspect. It was during interrogation that I confessed to the police.”
