Gumel disclosed that one Kabiru Shehu of Sharada Quarters, Kano Municipal Local Government Area, had reported that his 25-year-old divorced wife, Rahma Sulaiman, called and informed him that his six-year-old daughter had been kidnapped.

The CP said that upon investigation, the victim was rescued in Madobi LGA, while her mother later confessed to having planned the kidnapping of her daughter.

“At the the police station, I gave him the number of the guy that will receive the ransom.”

The suspect who said that she regretted her action, also announced that she had already reconciled with her husband.

Her husband, who also confirmed their reconciliation, said that his wife had never done such before.
