MUHAMMED SABIU writes that a woman kidnapper named Hauwa is as active in the kidnap trade as any of her male counterpart, but basically using her beauty as bait.

NEMESIS finally caught up with a notorious kidnapper operating in the North, who confessed to the abductions of some of her boyfriends. While kidnapping is assumed to be the exclusive preserve of men, this female kidnapper has shown by her statement, according to police sources, that even ladies are not left out of the nefarious business.

The involvement of HauwaYunus, the female kidnapper, according to ArewaLive findings, has opened more dangerous dimensions to the alarming extent kidnapping has reached in the country.

It is not an exaggeration that kidnapping is now a big business in Nigeria. In fact, it is a multibillion naira business given the number of kidnappings taking place every year and the amount paid by families of kidnap victims as ransoms around the nation. Record also places Nigeria as one of the countries with the highest rate of kidnapping in the world.

Kidnapping across the North just like in other parts of the country is on the increase. A kidnap victim, AdamuLawal, who was kidnapped along Abuja /Kaduna road sometimes ago, had no cash or relatives to raise money for him. He told ArewaLive that he had to resort to selling his landed properties to raise the N5m the kidnappers demanded from him.

Lawal who spoke to Arewa Live narrated how he and others were kidnapped while travelling to Abuja in a commercial vehicle. The kidnappers waylaid the vehicle and asked everyone to disembark as they were all marched into a forest trekking for several hours until they got to a spot where the kidnappers began to contact the victims’ relations for a ransom.

‘I didn’t want to attract unnecessary noise, so I told my wife to sell our land and bring the money to the kidnappers,” he said.

However, Aliyu Ismail, another victim was able to escape from his captors. He told Arewa Live how he ran for several hours inside the bush after escaping from the kidnappers. According to him, as from the second day after his abduction, he began to plot his escape as he didn’t have money to raise for his ransom.

According to police record, there were about 685 kidnappings in the first quarter of 2019 alone. Kidnappers and bandits have so much entrenched themselves in the business, such that even state governments such as Zamfara, are negotiating with them to either free those in their custody or give up the heinous business entirely.

In the same Zamfara State, findings have shown that people are kidnapped on a daily basis as the state government seems to have become totally incapable of bringing the menace to an end. In almost every case of kidnapping, ransoms are paid by the family of the victim. The amount paid, however, would depend on the status of the victim, his placement in the society or the condition under which he became a victim.

According to an official statement by the Zamfara State government, released three months ago, a total sum of N3 billon was paid as ransom by families of those kidnapped in 2019 alone.

The recent arrest of HauwaYunus reportedly one of the most notorious kidnappers in the Northern part of the country, according to security sources, is helping to deconstruct the criminal act as well as helping to find a lasting solution.

The lady, named HauwaYunus, is a Fulani and lives in a village in Nasarawa State. According to a security operative, AbdullahiAlhassan, “Hauwa is from Jigawa State but lives in Masaka village in Nasarawa State.”

According to Alhassan, HauwaYunus is a very beautiful woman, who had been in three marriages. All the three marriages, he explained, had collapsed due to her wayward lifestyle and deviant attitude.

One of Hauwa’s former husbands, according to Alhassan, disclosed that she often came back home drunk. Several efforts were made to make her change her ways but all came to nought.

Hauwa, he told ArewaLive further, did not just earn her reputation as a notorious kidnapper. Her kidnap record, he stated, speaks volumes as she had been linked with the kidnap of several prominent Nigerians. Though just 24 years old, her criminal record, it was said, was far advanced than her age. She was allegedly a specialist in using her beauty to lure men into relationships and would later kidnap them for ransom.

She was also said to have confessed to raping some of her victims as a result of her strong sexual appetite, especially after consuming some illicit drugs.

Arewa Live findings also gathered that Hauwa at one time or the other had kidnapped all her boyfriends, unknown to them that she was the mastermind of the crime. They would only be released after the payment of ransom to her accomplices.

The long arm of the law caught up with her recently in Abuja where she confessed to the police that she was in fact behind the kidnapping of her first boyfriend, who she confessed was rich and very caring. She stated further that when she realised that the man had several other girlfriends she decided to make money from him by kidnapping him.

Explaining how she managed to plan the kidnapping of her boyfriend, Arewa Live gathered that she lured him to one hotel where they both spent the night together. The man did not know that she had arranged for him to be kidnapped on their way out of the hotel.

“Unknown to him [her boyfriend], I have planned with other members (of my gang) how he would be kidnapped. After several negotiations, he paid two million naira and I collected two hundred thousand as my share.

“Even though he did not know I planned his kidnap, when he was released he still wanted us to continue with our relationship,” she confessed.

Hauwa, ArewaLive gathered, also told the police that she organised the kidnapping of her second boyfriend, revealing that the man was kidnapped when he stopped by the roadside to buy something on his way to his house.

“He paid the sum of one million naira as ransom and I collected fifty thousand naira as my share,” she said.

Her third boyfriend, according to her ,was not rich like the others. He eventually paid N500,000 for his release. Despite the fact that the man was poor, according to Hauwa, she spent more time with him than the others.

Apart from her lovers, Arewa Live was informed that Hauwa also confessed to hatching the plan to kidnap her closet friend, Zainab. She told her interrogators that she was with Zainab on one occasion and overheard her talking over the phone that she would soon get a credit alert of N600,000.

“I thought that the best thing to do was to kidnap her and collect the money from her. Eventually, I kidnapped her,” she said.

But Zainab, her bosom friend, did not survive the ordeal. Due to inhuman treatment she was subjected to by her abductors, she sustained life-threatening injuries which eventually led to her death.

After Zainab’s death, Hauwa was said to have gone into her friend’s room, took her ATM and withdrew all the money in her account. Not only that, she took her car, repainted it and later sold it, including almost every other thing her friend owned including personal effects like clothes.

Karma would catch up with Hauwa as she was eventually arrested by the Inspector General of Police Special Squad under the leadership of Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari.

She is currently helping the police in its findings on several other kidnappings in different parts of the North.

Bala Mohammed Is A Patriot, Will Never Decamp To APC, Northern Youth Leaders Tell FFK

A Frontline group made up.of over 100 youth groups, Northern Youths Leaders Forum (NYLF) has described as laughable, claims by former Aviation Minister, Chief Fami Fani-Kayode that he would Influence Bauchi State Governor, Senator Bala Mohammed and two other People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governors to dump their party as lame and laughable.

NYLF President, Comrade Elliot Afiyo expressed this at a world press conference in Yola on Friday September 17, 2021.

“We observed the defection by Chief Femi Fani Kayode (FFK) from PDP to APC yesterday with little or no surprise.

“We strongly believed that this is the time and season for defections. It is our belief that whenever someone defects, it is obvious that he or she is pursuing something or something is pursuing him or her.

“However, we are surprised and astonished with the reason and claims of Chief Femi Fani Kayode (FFK) for his defection, how he influenced the defection, of three PDP’s Governors to APC and his lame claim that he is in the process of influencing the defection of another three PDP’s Governors to APC,” Afiyo said.

NYLF said that while they remain aloof, tacit and obstetric to his claims that God told him to defect to APC and how he influenced Governors Umahi, Ayade and Matawalle’s defection, they take seriously with unassuming exception, his claim that Governors Ifeanyi Unwuanyi, Bala Mohammed and Seyi Makinde are on their way to APC through his influence.

“We are odiously convinced that FFK has the right to use his only and available political weapon and value which is his tongue, we make bold to say that FFK as we know him, has made a lunatic and vain claim to placate and please his Taskmasters and Paymasters.

“We are not surprised with this claim because former President Obasanjo said it on the 30th of August, 2018 when we visited him and I quote ‘”Fani Kayode is my boy, give him food, he will praise and sing for you. (Check Punch Newspaper 31st August 2018).

“We sincerely believed and truly too, that this is part of his praise singing which he is known for,” he said.

The group stated categorically that Governor Bala Mohammed will never dump the PDP for APC.

“WR want to state clearly without mincing words that Senator Bala Mohammed has not and will never defect to APC and also, he has never at anytime discussed the issue of defection with FFK.

“Senator Bala Mohammed is a Nationalist who always places the National interest above his personal interest.

“He has and still passing through persecutions, humiliations, prosecutions, character assignations, campaigns of calumny, frustrations, insults and even spiritual attacks.

“In all these, God has given him the grace to remain steadfast, focused and committed to his ideals which he always defines.

“Therefore, there is no number of forces which he has not encountered that are pursuing him which would make him to defect to APC,” NYLF stressed.

The group said that it is a general and public knowledge that the nation is sinking and there is every need for patriots and advanced citizens to come together to rescue Nigeria.

“Bala Mohammed by acts of commission or omission, has proved to us that he will be part and parcel of the Rescue Mission.

“No doubt with people like Bala Mohamed in the boat, Nigeria and Nigerians will be rescued in 2023 from the National conspiracy by the few elites which FFK is a prominent member by his actions,” they added.

On the Southern Governors’ demand for a Southern President, NYLF described it as a good development, however, warning that it does not reflect realities on ground.

“It is a good political development that the Southern Governors are now speaking collectively irrespective of political leanings.

“The call by these Governors is a
welcome development but it does not reflect the reality on ground.
Nigeria presently is facing an uncommon and unconventional situation which requires uncommon and unconventional solution by uncommon and unconventional President.

” It would be recalled that former President Jonathan was sincerely committed to dealing with the security challenges between 2010 and 2011 but was frustrated by some Northern elites who brainwashed the Northerners especially the rural North into believing that Jonathan was killing Northerners.

“Jonathan was completely blocked by the same Northern elites from purchasing arms to fight insurgency.

“It is our strong belief and candid opinion that Nigeria needs a bold and courageous Northerner who will take the bull by the horn and tackle the security challenges which is our major national challenge for now even if it means killing the trouble makers if possible, so as to bring desired peace,” they advised.

The group further at the briefing, pointed out that they are impressed by the massive infrastructural development in Adamawa State, endorsing him for another term in 2023.

“We are highly impressed by the infrastructural developments in Adamawa State.

“We observed with great disbelief that such a feat could be achieved in just two years in Adamawa State that is not part of the oil producing States. We sincerely commend
Governor Ahmadu Fintiri and his team.

“In view of this thereof, we want to assure him that NYLF will do whatever is possible
within the confines and ambit of the law, to ensure that he comes back in 2023 to continue with his good works.

“To this end, we wish to appeal to other parties in Adamawa State to collapse their structures, support and vote for Fintiri during the Gubernatorial elections come 2023,” they said.

NYLF assured Nigerians that come 2023, “we will have a President that will be referred to as Nigeria’s President of Nigeria’s extraction not Northern or Southern extraction.

“We should not be distracted, discouraged or despair because of people that are identifying with or Conspirators because of a pot of porridge,” they said.

Fani-Kayode lied, played no role in my defection to APC, says Umahi

Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, has said former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, played no role in his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress in November 2020.

The governor made this known on Friday when spoke on Channels Television’s ‘Sunrise Daily’ breakfast programme monitored by The PUNCH.

Umahi described as an insult, claim by Fani-Kayode that he was instrumental in his defection last year.

The controversial ex-minister, who officially defected from PDP to APC on Thursday had made the statement while speaking to newsmen after he was presented to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), by the APC caretaker chairman, Mai Mala Buni, at the Presidential Villa.

Fani-Kayode had hinted at the possibility of the governors of Bauchi, Enugu and Oyo States dumping the PDP and joining him in the APC.

In response to a question as to whether he had friends from the PDP following him into the APC, the ex-minister had said, “There are many people. If you ask my friend and brother, Governor Matawalle here, there are many people within the PDP, who do want to come over to the APC. I can tell you that. I was there and very instrumental when Governor Umahi joined the APC.

“I was there and very instrumental when Governor Ayade did the same thing. I was there and very instrumental when my friend and brother governor of Zamfara, Governor Matawale did the same thing.

“Now, if you don’t mind me mentioning names, somebody like the governor of Enugu State, the governor of Oyo State, and of course, my good friend, the governor of Bauchi State, great friends of mine, and I sincerely hope that they too may end up coming in this direction.”

But speaking on the television on Friday morning, Umahi said Fani-Kayode must withdraw his statement, adding that the ex-minister was “never” part of the discussions that led to his defection.

The Ebonyi State governor said, “He (Fani-Kayode) needs to withdraw that statement. He is my good friend but it was an insult on my person and the other governors. The man did not know when I moved but incidentally, he visited me and we discussed and he said he was coming to join me with other governors to declare.

“How would somebody in PDP be instrumental to my moving, a whole governor of a state, not even a small governor – an experienced governor.

“So, he has to withdraw the statement; he was never part of any discussion of my movement. I moved the South-East to the centre of administration; I moved to close the gap between the centre and South-East which our forefathers like Nnamdi Azikew fought for.

“So, for somebody to say that a whole Chairman of South-East Governors’ Forum, he was instrumental to that, it is an insult on my person and with all due respect, he has to withdraw that statement.”

“He remains my friend but he played no role in my movement and I am sure he did not play any role in the movement of others.”
