According to the report, the 23-year-old suspect confessed in an interrogation that he learned kidnapping skills from Nollywood
He said, “Zubby Michael is my favorite Nollywood actor and he is good at kidnapping roles.
“I decided to try out some of the methods used by Zubby to kidnap children and adults in the movies.
“I started by visiting several schools around Ojo to see the possibility of picking children without anyone noticing.”
“The suspect revealed that he used the tactics he learnt to kidnap the child in November 16, 2021.
Apologising for his crimes, he said, “I am sorry for causing his family so much pain. I am not a cultist or an armed robber. I do not have a gang.
“I just trained myself by watching Zubby Michael. My parents trained me very well, I was just impatient and greedy.”
