The alleged kidnapping perpetrator who confessed his involvement in two kidnappings, explained that he was co opted to kidnapping by sponsors he claimed not to know.
He noted that the last operation which led to his arrest was to earn him #400,000 as his sponsors were billed to receive #4million ransom, while he got #30,000 from first operation.
