The Bauchi State Police Command, along with the Ahmed Ali Kwara Hunters Squad, has taken out five suspected kidnappers in Giade LGA and recovered weapons.

This was disclosed in a statement released on Monday by the state’s commissioner of police, Auwal Muhammad Musa.

He said, “Tapping from the fruits of collaboration with relevant security agencies, on February 11, 2024, at about 0200 hours, information at the disposal of the command indicated that some unknown people, numbering not fewer than five, armed with AK-47 rifles, invaded Giade LGA with the sole aim of kidnapping innocent citizens of the locality.”

Musa explained that preliminary investigation revealed that the suspected kidnappers were invited by one Abdullahi, surname unknown, from Bauchi and Taraba states.

The CP said that upon receiving the information, a team of detectives, in collaboration with the Ahmed Ali Kwara Hunters Squad, quickly swung into action and engaged the suspected kidnappers in a gun duel, leading to the instant neutralization of all the suspected bandits.

“Furthermore, the kidnappers were the same gang that kidnapped one Emeka of Itas-Gadau sometime in the year 2023 and collected the sum of N10 million as ransom,” he said.
