Fernado as been terrorising Isoko North LGA for years now with his mischievous act, but luck as ceased from him as he was caught yesterday.
According to reports, Fernando claimed he had to join the kidnapping gang when he was duped of #600,000.
He said: “They forced me to become their member if I must get back my money. My desperation to recover my money from them has landed me in this mess. They told me to go and wait at the scene where I was arrested for somebody who will bring some money from which they will offset what they had defrauded me.”
