There was a drama on Sunday in Sokoto State as suspected to be a kidnapper mistakenly boarded a commercial vehicle owned by one of his victims.

Daily Trust reported that, the victim, a driver, was kidnapped along Kankara in Katsina state while returning from Kano about two months ago.

He reportedly spent three weeks in captivity and was released after paying an undisclosed amount of money as ransom.

The newspaper quoted a member of the National Union of Road Transport Worker (NURTW) as saying the suspect was, however, recognised by the victim when he boarded his vehicle on his way to Kano state.

“The driver was quick to identify him because the incident happened not too long ago,” the NURTW official was quoted to have said.

“After identifying him, he alerted our leaders who in turned informed the nearest police outpost.”
