Mother in police net for allegedly kidnapping daughter, demanding N2 million ransom

The Katsina State Police Command has arrested a housewife, Fatima Bishir, 22, for allegedly arranging the kidnap of her five-year-old daughter to implicate her husband’s ex-wife.

She was said to have sent an SMS to her husband demanding N2 million ransom in Mashi local government area of the state before the daughter would be released.

The police spokesman, SP Gambo Isah, made the disclosure on Thursday in Katsina during a press briefing.

“On July 5, 2020, at 0800 hours, the suspect falsely reported at Mashi Police Division that her little daughter was missing and strongly suspected the ex-wife of her husband,” he said.

Isah added that the suspect further claimed that the said ex-wife once threatened her that she would avenge the death of her daughter who died under her care.

He revealed that the suspect took pants and canvas shoes of the daughter to the house of the ex-wife to implicate her, where the police recovered them.

“After thorough investigation, the suspect confessed to being the writer of the text message sent to her husband, Bishir Isyaku, 40, threatening him to either pay N2 million ransom or risk his daughter being killed by the kidnappers,” he said.

He further revealed that the suspect confessed to have taken away the daughter from their residence in Mashi to Kano, where she hid her with the help of her housemaid, Faiza.

According to him, luck ran out of the suspect when she took the girl away from Kano to Dutsi trying to abandon her near the house of the ex-wife’s mother.

He said an investigation was ongoing and the suspects would be prosecuted to serve as a deterrent to others.
