A kidnapper who uses social media app Facebook to lure his victims has confessed to his crimes.
The man known as Sadiq Abubakar has been arrested by the Nigerian Police Force and charged with kidnapping and blackmail.
According to the man, he uses a fake name ‘Samuel Johnson’ on Facebook where he lures his victims who are predominantly women.
Following his arrest, this is what he had to say;
“My name is Sadiq Abubakar. I am from Kogi state. My social media name is Samuel Johnson. I do online kidnapping. Sometimes they do send me a friend request. Sometimes I send them a friend request. We become friends. I invite them, then I capture them, and I ask for ransom. So that is what I do.
My advice to young women out there is to be careful and trust nobody. And they should always be careful and be sensitive. . Women are very easy to deceive”.
