  • As Police arrest more kidnappers

The acting Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has commended the men and officers of the police force for their dedication towards eradicating violent crimes in the country.

He gave the commendation while reacting to the successes of Operation Puff Adder whose operatives recently arrested 18 more notorious kidnappers, recovered 22 AK 47 rifles, five locally-made pistols and a cache of live ammunitions.

While commending his men for this and many other feats, the IGP re-assures the nation that Nigeria Police working in concert with other security agencies will not rest on its oars until kidnappings and other violent crimes are subdued, and sanity restored to the land.

The combined team of crack detectives from IRT, TIU and other Operatives, using actionable intelligence obtained from the Spiritual god father of the kidnappers, Mallam Salisu Abubakar who was recently arrested by the police, tactically “smoked out” the kidnappers and armed bandits from their hide-outs in Birnin Gwari, Rijana, Katari, Mai Daro and Buruku Forests in Kaduna State before they were eventually arrested at different locations and times in Kaduna, Katsina, Niger and Kogi states respectively.

Meanwhile, Police investigations have positively linked the arrested suspects to some of the most heinous crimes committed in Kaduna States and its environs in recent times.

Specifically for example, Abubakar Ibrahim alias Dan Habu, aged 37 years and a native of Kabam in Igabi local Government Area of Kaduna state, who was arrested on the 15th April 2019 at Rigachikun in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, confessed to the Kidnapping and gruesome murder of HRH King Agom Adara of Kajuru LGA and many other kidnappings and murders.

Similarly, the arrested gang members were also indicted by investigations for the kidnap and murder of Mallam Yakubu Usman, 40 years old male of Jere LGA, Kaduna State and many other crimes.

According to a statement signed by Police spokesman, DCP Frank Mba, the suspects belong to different loose, fairly independent but vicious criminal gangs with their operations centrally coordinated by their spiritual god father Mallam Salisu Abubakar.

Efforts are currently being intensified to arrest other gang members still at large, and recover all weapons in the gangs’ armory.
