The Nigeria Police Force headquarters has nabbed and paraded the killers of Pa Defwan Dariye, the father of former governor of Plateau State, Joshua Dariye.

The 93-year-old man was killed after his abductors collected N10million ransom from his family.

Jethro Nguyen, a 53-year-old leader of the kidnap gang and an indigene of Bokos, said he had to hire 10 others including some Fulani herders to successfully abduct the old man from his palace.

He added that they kept him in custody for about 10 days before killing him.

Nguyen, who is also the mastermind of the crime, said he gave one of the abductors the order to shoot and kill the old man.

He said he decided to abduct the old man because he was a good target to make money as his son was a former governor of Plateau State and senator.
