Istifanus Gurama with his killers

The kidnappers arrested in connection with the killing of Mr Bello Istifanus Gurama, the Human Resources Manager of Dangote Industries Limited, have revealed the reasons behind the killing.


It would be recalled that Gurama had gone to pay a ransom of N5.6 million to the kidnappers for the release of five expatriates that they kidnapped.

The suspects, who had demanded for N100 million, identified as Abubakar Gide, 24; Abdullahi Salihu, 22; and Babuga Adamu 25, killed Gurama after collecting the ransom from him.

After killing him, they dumped his body in a river.

It was gathered they shot him in the head.

Nine of them were involved in the operation, but only three have been arrested.

The kidnappers while revealing to the operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team who arrested them the reason they killed Gurama, said it was because the money he brought fell far below their expectations.

They said they had worked it out that none of them will get less than N11 million each from the N100 million ransom, only for Gerard to appear with just N5.6 million.

Salihu reportedly fired the shot that sent Gurama to his grave.

“It all started after four expatriates and one Nigerian working for Dangote Group in Ijebu Igbo Ogun State were abducted on November 9, 2016.

“When Gurama was alerted about the kidnap of his colleagues and asked to go and negotiate for their release, he had thought it was like other negotiation: fluid, simple and successful.

“The negotiation turned out to be his last.

“On November 13, 2016, Gurama went to pay ransom for the five workers to be released.

“When the kidnappers discovered that the money was not N100 million as they demanded, they held Gurama.

“When the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, got the information, he quickly deployed his IRT operatives to the Ogun State.

“The team was led by a Chief Superintendent of Police, Abba Kyari,” a police source said.
