The Nigeria Police has arrested the killers of Pa Defwan Dariye, the father of former governor of Plateau State, Joshua Dariye.

The 93-year-old was killed after his abductors collected N10 million ransom from his family.

The leader of the kidnap gang, Jethro Nguyen, 53, an indigene of Bokos, said he hired 10 others including some Fulani herders to abduct the old man from his palace, adding that he was kept at their hideout for about 10 days before he was murdered.

Nguyen, who was paraded at the Force headquarters, Abuja, on Wednesday,  confessed that he gave a gang member the order to shoot the old man.

He said they abducted the deceased “because he was a good target to make money as his son was a one-time governor of Plateau State and senator of the Federal Republic.”
