The police say they have arrested Bello Audu,’Yellow’, the alleged mastermind of kidnappings on Abuja-Kaduna road, TheCable reports.

He allegedly confessed to more than 50 kidnappings and killings. Members of his gang are also said to be in custody.

In a video recording, the kidnap suspect, who spoke in Hausa, said he has received ransom up to N10 million.

”My name is Dala Audu, I’m 40 years old. I have two wives and five children. I have collected ransom up to N10 million – sometimes N700,000, N600,000 and N900,000,”

The families of the victims had to pay undisclosed sums as ransom to secure their release.

On Tuesday, six persons were also reported kidnapped on the road.

Abuja-Kaduna road has become a notorious flash-point of kidnappings, and many commuters have resorted to travelling by rail putting pressure on the train stations in Abuja and Kaduna.
