The suspects, who dressed in military camouflage, were paraded by the Force Public Relations Officers, Frank Mba, at the headquarters of defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), in Abuja.
The suspects – Adamu Bello, Isiaku Lawal, and Muazu Abubakar – told newsmen that 25 of them abducted the students.
They said they carried out the operation in a desperate bid to get money.
Abubakar, a 27-year-old suspect, said, “Twenty-five of us carried out the operation. We kidnapped 136 students and I got N100,000 share from the money.”
