Chief Olu Falae abdutors, Abdullahi Usman aka Kadiri right and Babawuro kato, during the parade by DSS in Abuja on Monday.
The Department of State Service (DSS), on Monday, paraded two Fulani herdsmen who abducted a one-time Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Chief Olu Falae, on his farm in Akure, Ondo State, last month just as the suspected abductors allegedly confessed to have received N5 million before releasing him.
The suspects, according to Mallam Abdullahi Garba who briefed the press on behalf of the Service, are Abdullahi Usman (a.k.a Kadri) and Babawuro Kato.
However, Kato, who told journalists that he led the gang that abducted Falae, disclosed that a man who coordinated the abduction absconded with the N5m without giving them a dime.
Parading the two suspects before newsmen, Mallam Garba declared that the "abductors were mere criminals" and that "investigations have further revealed that their action was not targeted at Falae as a statesman and prominent Yoruba leader."
He said that the duo were arrested by the DSS on October 5 at J Zebra Hotel along Ganaja Road, Lokoja, Kogi State, following a tip-off.
The prime suspect, Kato told newsmen that they carried out the operation so as to get enough money to celebrate the Eid-el-Kabir festival.
