He explained that the suspects, in their confessional statements, said they were in Pantogora to perfect their strategy to kidnap Alhaji Adamu Hassan while demanding N10 million as ransom.
He said that the three suspects later agreed for N4 million, failure of which the victim would be killed.
The commandant also stated that one of the suspects had worked for the victim where 150 cows and 170 sheep were stolen from him.
“All the three suspects confessed to the crime and would be charged to court after investigation.
