In order to stem the tide of rampant cases of kidnappings, cattle rustling and armed banditry along Toro, Gumau and Ningi Axis, The Bauchi State Police Command in collaboration with a re-known hunter Ali Kwara organized a well coordinated operation relying on actionable intelligence and stormed Yuga forest, a notorious hideout for kidnappers in Toro LGA of Bauchi State between 5/1/2017 to date in order to apprehend the hoodlums and rescue several hostages who were held captives and awaiting ransom payment by their families.
On sighting the police/hunters, suspects opened fire which triggered a fierce gun battle. After incurring heavy casualties, hoodlums abandoned their rifles and escaped into the Bush with bullet wounds.

In a related development, following intelligence report, the command also arrested 19 suspected kidnappers in various locations as follows; 3 suspects in Yuga Forest, Toro LGA, 1 suspect in Jimi village of Darazo LGA, 1 suspect in Tama District of Toro LGA, 2 suspects in Ningi LGA, 3 suspects in Kundum of Bauchi LGA, 3 in Giwa hamlet of Toro, 3 suspects in Ganjuwa LGA, 1 suspect in Tashan Durumi in Toro LGA and 2 suspects from Alkaleri LGA of Bauchi State respectively. The command further arrested a suspected informer and negotiator of the kidnappers in Gilliri Village of Bauchi LGA.
