daughter yet to be arrested

Abubakar Saadu, who allegedly collected $15,000 in bitcoin
as a ransom to release a kidnapped victim, Aisha Ardo, has
not been arrested by security agencies.
Sources at both the Police and the Department of State
Services (DSS), told PRNigeria on Tuesday that investigation
was ongoing.
The daughter of Dr. Umar Ardo, who is a cousin to former
Vice President Atiku Abubakar, was kidnapped last Saturday
at a supermarket in Asokoro, Abuja.
Her father had confirmed that he paid $15,000 to secure her
release on Sunday night after she had spent about 30 hours
with the kidnappers at a forest close to Gwarinpa District in
Abuja.
The security sources said images on social media claiming
that the recipient of the ransom through bitcoin transaction
had been arrested in Kano was false.
Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police, IGP M.A
Adamu, on Monday declared that the Federal Capital
Territory is safe, secure and not under any form of siege.
He said: “This assertion comes against the backdrop of
recent speculations in some sections of the media,
particularly the Social Media, of an upsurge in crime rate
within and around the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
“Like other climes across the World, the country has its
security challenges.
“A comprehensive analysis of crime statistics on major
cities across the world would reveal that Abuja has one of
the lowest crime rates and remains indisputably one of the
safest capital cities in the world.
“The Federal Capital Territory Police Command has a robust
anti-crime architecture which is continually rejigged to
effectively tackle prevailing and emerging crimes.
“I enjoin all law-abiding citizens and visitors alike to go
about their lawful endeavours without any fear or
apprehension”.
