It has emerged from the Department of State Services (DSS), that former secretary to the government of the federation, Chief Olu Falae, was abducted by suspected criminals and not Fulani herdsmen.

It would be recalled that the DSS paraded two suspects, Abdullahi Usman, the okada rider, and Babawuro Kato, a cattle rearer, both of whom confessed their involvement in the kidnap.

The Service expressed concern over the ethnic dimension the kidnapping case has taken, just as it insisted that the elder statesman was kidnapped by criminals.

Abdullahi Garba who spoke on behalf of the DSS urged Nigerians to overlook moves by those it termed mischief makers who have given the incident an ethnic colouration.
