"The police had arrested Isa Ibrahim, victim's friend, Lateef Bello, Rahaman and other people who participated in the crime.

Isa Ibrahim while addressing newsmen, he said, " I don't know that they will kill my father and the reason for my action is due to the disagreement between me and my father which led to him sending me packing from his house.

He explained to me that ransom will be paid and from the ransom the gang will pay him the sum of N500, 000.  But after the deal they killed my father and refuse to pay, N500,000 but they paid me N45,000"

"I regret my action because I only want to get his money not his life"

Also, the victims friend, Lateef Bello who participated in the crime revealing the reason for killing Amuda, he said, " When he was in our den he removed what was used to blindfold his eyes which resulted to identify us , his action infuriated the two Togolese that was hired by Jolaanabi and they killed him.

"Jolaanabi called Rahaman to get two Togolese from Ibadan
