Niger, Nigeria – The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has arrested an 18-year-old student for attempting to kidnap the provost of the College of Fisheries, New Bussa.

The NSCDC said the student conspired with another person, now at large, to write a letter threatening to kidnap the provost if he failed to pay a ransom.

Mr Nasir, however, said the suspect did not demand any particular amount before NSCDC operatives arrested him.
