He said the suspect was arrested following a report lodged at Agbara divisional headquarters by one Ismail Yusau, who reported that, he sent his daughter on errand to Agbara market at about 11 am of the day, only to receive a strange call some hours after from an unknown person, who informed him that his daughter has been kidnapped, and that if he didn't send the sum of #250,000  as ransome, he will never set his eyes on the girl again.
