A 36 year-old Nigerian, John Lyon, has been nabbed after a N70 million ransom payment was allegedly traced to his bank account.
In a viral video, John Lyon allegedly confesses of being involved in only two kidnappings.
In the video, Lyon was stripped and left with a boxer short only. He was surrounded by men who appeared to be plain clothes police detectives.
He confessed to participating in only two kidnappings in the video while pleading for forgiveness. But another man countered him, claiming to have been his victim. He said he would testify against him in court.
Those who know John Lyon said he is a millionaire based in Abuja. That he was an ex – banker with one of the big banks in Nigeria. That he uses the name Lyon Interior as a cover up for illicit crime activities.
Another photo of Lyon during a church service also reveals that he is a deeply religious man. He could be observed in the still photograph engaging in a passionate prayer.
