Police nab 32 kidnap suspects in Kaduna

Posted 4 months, 2 wks ago
The police have apprehended 32 kidnap and armed robbery suspects terrorising commuters on the Abuja-Kaduna highway.

They were arrested by the operatives of the ‘Operation Absolute Sanity’ deployed by the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, in the area about a week ago.

The Force spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, who paraded the men on Monday at Rijanah Divisional Police headquarters in Kaduna, explained that the first suspect, Mohammed Musa, was arrested at Gidan Busa in Kaduna while nine others were nabbed at Rijanah area of the state.

He stated that 14 of the suspects were picked up at Abuja-Kaduna highway while six others were arrested at Mararaban Jos, Aklibu village, and Birnin Gwari all in Kaduna State.

Items recovered from them included four AK47 rifles, six locally-made pump action guns and two magazines.

Some of the suspects are Musa Hassan, Mamuda Ado, Shuaibu Musa, Sani Abubakar, Shehu Ado and Abubakar Bello.

Others include Mohammed Garba, Usman Bello, Kabiru Ahmadu, Usman Gambo, Abubakar Abdullahi, Yahaya Usman and Suleiman Lawan.

The police spokesman said, “Within the first week of the commencement of Operation Absolute Sanity, the suspects were arrested in their hideouts and the exhibits listed were recovered from them.

“They have made confessional statements indicating the various criminal roles they played in the commission of the crime. Most of them have been identified by some of their victims. They will soon be charged to court on completion of investigation.”

Moshood said the IG commended the communities and people in the towns and villages along the Abuja-Kaduna highway for their cooperation with the police personnel deployed for the operation.

“The IG, however, implored commuters, travellers and other road users to support the personnel in the discharge of their responsibilities and in the implementation of other crime prevention and control strategies of the Force,” he stated.
